Invested in Our Communities

At The J.M. Smucker Co., we believe in feeding connections that help us thrive, because life tastes better together. We have a proud history of giving back–on a local level to the communities where we live and work and on a larger, national scale to deserving organizations that align with our values and purpose. Our charitable giving focuses on three areas of community investment.

Thriving Families and Kids

As a family business we have a unique appreciation for the value of family and the development of children. We support organizations that drive opportunities to enhance the role of family in society while providing a brighter future for children.

Pets & People Thriving Together

The health benefits of companionship are vast and wide. We believe in connecting the pets who need people and the people who need pets through programs that offer far-reaching support.

Supporting Our Communities When They Need Us Most

We believe we can only realize success by thriving together with all those connected to our business. That starts in supporting the areas where we live and work. Tamara Fynan, Executive Director, Community Engagement and Corporate Philanthropy shares our efforts to maximize our impact.
