Clayton Homes - Where our hearts are.
We strongly believe in giving back. That's why we support our team members in their efforts to improve their communities throughout the nation. In addition, we focus our corporate giving on two main areas: education and housing.
It begins at home.
Our team members are the driving force behind Clayton Homes charitable giving, so we're proud to support causes that are important to them and that improve their hometown communities. When possible, we provide a dollar-for-dollar match for employee giving to a variety of approved nonprofit organizations. In addition, we support and encourage participation in various walk-a-thons, bowl-a-thons, auctions and other fundraising events.
As a company, we also support many national groups, including the United Way, the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation as well as the American Cancer Society and the American Heart Association.
Over the past 20 years, Clayton Homes has given more than $20 million to national nonprofit organizations.
Building a solid foundation.
We concentrate our corporate philanthropic efforts on two distinct initiatives.
First, we're involved in efforts by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to improve public high school education in the United States.
Second, we've developed our own initiative to create individual wealth by growing homeowner real equity. We supply seed capital and support programs that focus on these areas.
