Charitable Giving

The company's charitable giving benefits organizations in the communities where its railroads operate, and beyond.

The company offers a Matching Gift Program that provides a corporate match to multiply the charitable contributions of subsidiary employees. Each year, the program contributes to local, state and national organizations including hospitals, schools, libraries, theaters, museums and historical societies, humane societies, fire departments, food banks, parks and nature conservancies.

Each holiday season, the company also makes donations to charitable organizations selected by its operating regions. For 2020, the regions selected the following organizations focused on health, hunger and diversity:
