Community Investment at MillerCoors

Community Investment

The people at MillerCoors have a long tradition of supporting the communities where we live and work. Every year, we dedicate our time and resources to support the causes that matter to us most, including responsibility, water stewardship, education and economic empowerment.


Volunteer Hours Continue to Climb

Contributing to the communities where we live and work is a key ingredient to creating America’s best beer company. Our employees have a tangible impact on our communities by participating in Great Water Month projects to improve the watersheds around our breweries, supporting local nonprofit organizations or joining the thousands of MillerCoors employees who volunteer on their own.

MillerCoors employees spent more than 53,000 hours in 2011 volunteering in our local communities, a 50 percent increase in the total hours reported for 2010. Nearly 2,100 employees, or 24 percent of the MillerCoors workforce, volunteered in 2011 — a 40 percent increase in the number of employees who volunteered in 2010.

$12.7 Million Investment in Our Communities in 2011

MillerCoors donations to nonprofits play an important role in supporting our local communities. Our employees’ personal contributions, including nearly $960,000 to the United Way, are a key part of our total community investment. Together, MillerCoors employee and corporate donations to nonprofits exceeded $12.7 million in 2011.

While we do not include the donation of our time when calculating our total monetary investment for the year, our hours spent volunteering in 2011 could be valued at more than $1.1 million in capacity-building work for local nonprofit organizations.1
