Giving at a Glance

Through collaboration with a range of groups and nonprofit organizations in our local communities, our companies and employees donate their time and resources in three distinct ways: Foundation Giving, Corporate Giving, and Employee Giving & Volunteerism.

Reynolds has a long history of supporting communities in need and our employees, whether locally or nationally, are passionate about making a positive impact in the lives of others.

To make the biggest impact with our charitable giving, we align our giving in three ways:

Foundation Giving

Two independent foundations and a charitable trust have been created, funded, and are managed by three of our operating companies. Each foundation or trust supports programs that strengthen the communities of our employees.

Corporate Giving

Reynolds operating companies make monetary and in-kind donations to support nonprofit strategic partnerships, immediate needs including disaster relief and economic development efforts in the communities in which our employees live and work.

Employee Giving & Volunteerism

We value causes and initiatives that are important to our employees. That is why we offer various ways for employees to increase their personal commitments to organizations they’re most passionate about.

Since 2008, we have gifted approximately $107 million

to nonprofits through Reynolds American Inc., the Reynolds American Foundation, The Santa Fe Natural Tobacco Company (SFNTC) Foundation, and the American Snuff Co. (ASC) Charitable Trust.

In 2023, employees within the Reynolds American organization contributed over 150 volunteer hours to Second Harvest Food Bank, helping sort shelves to provide almost 12,000 meals.
