Pitney Bowes is strongly committed to investing in the communities we serve. We believe such investment is most effective when it is aligned with our corporate mission of helping customers grow through better communications. For this reason, we focus our philanthropic giving on support for literacy and education. Through the Pitney Bowes Foundation and corporate contributions, we provide grants and matching gifts to worthy causes. We also encourage direct employee involvement, and every year our employees donate thousands of hours in support of literacy programs and community organizations.
