Throughout our history as a public company, we have been guided by a fundamental belief that we will do well as a company by doing good – for our own people and for the communities where we operate. This philosophy has been instrumental in our continuing growth and prosperity across the United States and in our operations in Mexico and the Bahamas. Our stewardship begins with people, continues with our land and extends outward to our neighbors and communities, where we believe that it is essential that we always serve as good citizens who are engaged with the community. 

 

2020 Highlights

We leveraged the Vulcan Materials Company Foundation and company funds to support food banks, healthcare services, childhood education remote learning programs and other initiatives designed to lessen the difficulties experienced in many of our communities. Our Foundation pledged an additional $1 million over originally budgeted amounts to support COVID-19 relief and diversity and inclusion initiatives. With these additional funds, we provided significant help in a number of ways, including contributions to support Wi-Fi and hotspot access to thousands of students in need across the country — in many cases we’re enabling connectivity for students not just in 2020, but through the 2021 school year. We also procured hundreds of laptop computers for remote students.

“Our relationship with Vulcan is kind of one of those heavenly drops,” said Battalion Chief Sean Lowery, noting that more than $70,000 has been raised through the partnership. “Our Chula Vista Firefighter’s Foundation has benefited tremendously.” The Foundation provides relief to families who face tragedy and often lose their belongings after disaster strikes.

Leveraging the Vulcan Foundation and corporate giving to support employee volunteerism.

Established in 1988, the Vulcan Materials Company Foundation supports a wide range of vital community programs across the United States, with a focus on education and workforce development, environmental stewardship, and civic and charitable programs where our employees are deeply engaged. Our Matching Gifts Program uses company funds to match the charitable contributions of our employees on a one-for-one basis. In the case of donations to schools, we will match gifts on a two-for-one basis, which triples the impact. As a key employee benefit, gift matching is one of many ways we leverage the strengths and giving spirit of our own people with the strengths and business ethic of our company, to build and sustain positive, long-lasting relationships.

“When the kids see him, they’re just ecstatic,” said pre-kindergarten teacher Dana Fikes. “They get very happy and excited and they want to take photos. When corporations and businesses, such as Vulcan, come in to support us, it makes you smile first of all because you thought about us. And when you guys show up, you show up incredibly.”

Committed to serving and supporting.

Our people believe in their company and our philosophy of community involvement, and it shows in their actions. We are committed to serving and supporting the neighborhoods and communities where we live and work. When COVID-19 pandemic precautions are not in place, our employees volunteer their time and talents in many ways from helping to fight hunger and disease to supporting pre-K and elementary education through high school, college and adult learning. Our people are also among the first to come to the aid of their communities when disasters hit. We also support and engage with a variety of environmental and conservation non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and initiatives.
