    Investing In Communities

    ​​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.
