Community

Pitney Bowes is strongly committed to investing in the communities we serve. We believe such investment strengthens our business, benefits our employees and reinforces our values. We also believe it is most effective when it is aligned with our corporate mission of helping organizations 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 complement our cash giving with in-kind donations of Pitney Bowes products and services. We also encourage direct employee involvement, and our employees respond every year by donating thousands of hours in support of literacy programs and community organizations.

Literacy and education

We provide funding, technology and expertise to non-profits working on literacy and education at every stage from early childhood through adulthood, with a special focus on programs designed to help close the achievement gap and strengthen the future workforce. The programs we support include national and regional after-school and summer reading programs, school system investments, and mentoring and job training initiatives.

Local Community Support

In areas where we have a significant local presence, we support community organizations through grants directed by Local Community Leadership Teams of employee volunteers. Each team receives a budget, which it then allocates to meet local priorities, with at least 70 percent of the funding dedicated to literacy and education programs.
