Procter & Gamble

Procter & Gamble, a major producer of household products, was nominated for CWLA's Corporate Friend of Children Award in 2002 by Beech Acres, a CWLA member agency in Cincinnati, where P&G was founded as a small, family-operated soap and candle company in 1837. In nominating P&G, Beech Acres President and CEO Jim Mason cited the company's family-friendly, community-friendly employment policies, as well as its generous contributions and its all-around good corporate citizenship.

P&G's community giving is focused primarily in two areas: education and improving the quality of life in communities. The company has an extensive, thriving history of international service to children. For example, P&G Brazil adopted and renovated a school in the local community--more than 35 P&G employees volunteered their time for the start-up. P&G Australia and Save the Children partnered to provide a better start for Australia's most vulnerable children--primarily indigenous groups, urban poor, and children in remote areas. P&G has also supported the United Way for the past 50 years; in 2002 alone, its gifts to the United Way totaled $5.1 million dollars, supplemented with an additional $14 million in donations from United Way employees in the United States and Puerto Rico.
