Record Year of Giving Back Leads to 3x Honor

MOLINE, Illinois – Over the past year, John Deere employees gave back in record-breaking numbers for community giving and volunteerism.

And once again, their efforts are being recognized. For the third consecutive year John Deere has been named to The Civic 50, an annual honor recognizing the 50 most community-minded US companies.

Deere was also awarded a gold medal this year after ranking second overall for its investments. The ranking analyzes how extensively and strategically Deere applied its resources to community engagement in the U.S., including employee time and skills, cash, investments, in-kind giving, and leadership.

The award is administered by Points of Light, the world’s largest nonprofit dedicated to accelerating people-powered change. The Civic 50 has become a national standard for corporate citizenship and showcases how companies are leading through social impact and civic engagement.

“On behalf of the company and all our employees, I want to thank Points of Light for this exciting honor,” said Mara Downing, president of the John Deere Foundation. “This recognition is a testament to our strong belief in trust-based philanthropy and unrestricted giving, demonstrating our commitment to helping end hunger and building stronger communities.”
