Investing In Communities

​​The Altria family of companies shares a tradition of community involvement dating back more than five decades. 
But 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 more than $1.1 billion in cash and in-kind contributions to hundreds of nonprofit organizations. Today, our companies focus their giving in the following key areas:
Supporting Youth Development: Success360°
 
Success360° is Altria’s tobacco companies’ investment in leading national and local nonprofit organizations that serve middle school kids and their families. Success360° helps these organizations effectively 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 work together to better coordinate their efforts.
