The Clorox Company Foundation Regular Grants
Founded in 1980, The Clorox Company Foundation (TCCF) has a mission to improve the quality of life in communities where Clorox employees live and work. Since its inception, the foundation has awarded cash grants totaling more than $107 million to nonprofit organizations, schools and colleges.
TCCF focuses on programs that support cultural arts, K-12 education, urban farming, and youth development. It serves the communities surrounding our Oakland, California, headquarters as well as those surrounding our remote offices and manufacturing facilities.
In addition to providing cash grants to nonprofits, TCCF supports the individual actions of employees by matching through our GIFT Campaign their personal donations of time and money. While the causes employees choose to support don’t necessarily reflect the focus areas of the foundation, community support has been, and will continue to be, an integral part of our company’s culture.
