A Good Global Citizen
As the creators of a product that enables togetherness and inspires connections, we know that we’re a big part of the communities where we operate and where our products touch lives. That’s why we’re always finding more ways to invest in those same communities. By 2025, we’re aiming to make the places where we work even better places to live by investing $100 million in initiatives that aspire to improve livelihoods, foster empowerment and build resilient communities.
Miller Lite Stay Proud, Be Loud
In partnership with the Matthew Shepard Foundation, Miller Lite supports the Stay Proud, Be Loud program to build awareness and help prevent hate crimes against LGBTQ individuals. The program features a roundtable to discuss the impact of hate crimes and how to increase reporting and prevention. Participants in the roundtable include Judy & Dennis Shepard, local law enforcement officials, and LGBTQ community leaders. This is followed by a happy hour featuring speakers, performances, and information on local hate crime statistics, safety tips, and ways to report crimes.
“MillerCoors is a great friend of Cara. Through their partnership, they are impacting the lives of Chicagoans through job placement and retention that help sustain our city’s economy. We are proud to collaborate with such an exceptional corporate community partner.”
– Maria Kim, President and CEO, Cara
Recognizing Leaders. Empowering Community.
We support and honor leaders in the Hispanic community and work to help up-and-coming Latino leaders to go further through the Coors Light Líderes program. Since 2006, the Líderes program has supported, honored, and highlighted emerging Latino leaders through grants, sharing of leadership skills, networking events, online resources and community partnerships.
We strengthen our hometown and multicultural communities through higher education, entrepreneurship, job creation and workforce readiness initiatives that empower people for economic success.
Our Beer Print
At MillerCoors, we believe being a great brewer goes hand in hand with being a responsible steward of the planet. Every year, MillerCoors employees and partners come together to protect valuable water resources and promote water stewardship. It’s part of our role to leave a favorable imprint on the communities and environments where we brew and sell our beer.
Tap Into Change
MillerCoors Tap Into Change program is a give back program that donates a portion of the proceeds from sales of MillerCoors products to local LGBTQ and HIV/AIDS nonprofit organizations. The program first started in Chicago six years ago and has since expanded to 16 cities across the country through our partnership with the Equality Federation. The program has raised more than $175,000 for local charities and in 2018, MillerCoors is donating $100,000 to those organizations through Tap Into Change.
Coors Banquet Protects Our West
We have always been profoundly proud of our roots. That’s why our brands support and celebrate those who work to protect the regions we know and love. Through the Coors Banquet “Protect Our West” program, MillerCoors donates 25 cents to the Wildland Firefighter Foundation (WFF) for every case of Coors Banquet sold from June to August. WFF is a nonprofit that provides emergency support to the families of firefighters who have been killed or seriously injured in the line of duty.
In the four years since the program’s inception, we have donated more than $1 million dollars to the foundation. Recently, WFF showed their gratitude to MillerCoors, by gifting the Coors Brewery a bronze statue of a fallen wildland firefighter. This firefighter statue symbolizes all the men and women who work and sacrifice to protect the Pacific region, and our mutual dedication to preserving our roots.
MillerCoors Donates 50K Cans of Water
MillerCoors has an ongoing commitment to water can donations to communities in crisis. As part of our commitment we are donating 50,000 cans of water to residents and firefighters impacted by the Carr Fire in Northern California. This donation is in partnership with the American Red Cross and Redding Distributing Company (RDC).
Earlier this year, MillerCoors donated 25,000 cans of water to residents in southern Iowa impacted by a boil order. MillerCoors made similar donations of more than 550,000 cans of water to Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico and the Caribbean from Hurricane Harvey, Irma, and Maria.
