Financial and in-kind support is essential to help nonprofit organizations sustain programs and meet their important goals. We connect our philanthropic investments to our mission of enriching and nourishing lives, focusing on:
Empowering People to Lead Healthier Lives
Inspiring children and families lead healthy lifestyles
Helping People Succeed through Education and Employment
Supporting skill development and training to enable underserved youth and adults to achieve economic independence and support their families.
Approximately 75 percent of our philanthropic resources are dedicated to addressing these issues. In 2016 we contributed nearly $15 million through the Aramark Charitable Fund, corporate contributions and our businesses.
We invest in organizations that we can build strategic and long-term partnerships with – and that develop proven programs where we can drive innovative and impact. In our headquarters city of Philadelphia, we support the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, Urban league of Philadelphia, Philadelphia Academies and several other civic and arts organizations dedicated to a strong, vibrant city.
Two hundred of Aramark’s outstanding team members from around the world have been named to the company’s Ring of Stars and will be recognized during an exclusive celebration in Scottsdale, AZ, this week.
