Apply for an Employee Community Grant
At Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, Inc. (GMCR) we are dedicated to improving the sustainability and quality of life of the communities where GMCR employees live and work. Through Employee Community Grant Programs at each of our employee sites in the United States and Canada, we provide grants to organizations and projects that address specific issues aligned with environmental stewardship, strong local systems, and economic prosperity. We look for solutions that take a whole systems approach, are multidisciplinary in planning and execution, and are designed to solve problems, not just respond to them.
Each employee site has its own grant program and review team, and each directs their philanthropic efforts and resources to a set of specific focus areas that are meaningful for their employees and relevant to their unique community. We support proven approaches, innovation, and new ideas in areas that range from energy to education. You can review our Employee Community Grant Process here.
