The Altria family of companies shares a tradition of community involvement dating back more than five decades.
Investing in our communities means more than just writing a check. We’re committed to helping make the communities where we live and work leading environments where we all can succeed. We work to find long-lasting solutions to the challenges facing our communities.
During the last 10 years, we have given $1 billion in cash and in-kind contributions to hundreds of non-profit organizations. Today, our companies focus their giving in the following key areas:
Supporting Youth Development: Success360°
Through Success360°, Philip Morris USA, U.S. Smokeless Tobacco Company and John Middleton invest in leading national and local non-profit organizations that serve middle school kids and their families. Success360° helps these organizations support middle school kids’ academic achievement and healthy development, with a focus on avoiding risky behaviors like tobacco use. It also provides funding to help these organizations coordinate their efforts.
Protecting the Environment
We are committed to reducing our companies’ environmental impact and promoting the sustainability of the natural resources on which we all depend. This includes supporting water quality and conservation, sustainable agriculture, and litter prevention and cleanup.
Arts & Culture
Altria has supported both the visual and performing arts for more than 50 years. We continue to champion arts and culture organizations that inspire and reflect the qualities we value in our business operations – creativity, diversity, excellence and innovation.
