Sonoco views its philanthropic and business endeavors as investments to improve the quality of life in communities where the Company has operations.
The Sonoco Foundation, Sonoco's principal conduit for corporate contributions, is responsive to human needs through its support of quality projects and programs within the areas it supports.
The Foundation's grant program focuses on education, health and wellness, arts and culture and the environment. The primary focus of these corporate contributions is to support institutions with a local, rather than a national or international, perspective.
The Sonoco Foundation will not support any organization that discriminates against groups or individuals based on race, color, religion, national origin or ancestry, sex, pregnancy, sexual orientation, marital status, gender identity or expression, age, disability, genetic information, veteran status, or any legally protected characteristic.
