The company’s charitable giving program benefits organizations in the communities where its railways operate and beyond.

The company has set up a Matching Gift Program that allows donations to be matched on behalf of its employees. For each donation that an employee makes, the company donates the same amount to charity. Each year through this program, G&W and its affiliates make donations to municipal, state and federal charities, including hospitals, schools, libraries, theatres, museums and historical societies, animal welfare associations, fire departments, food banks, parks and nature conservation organizations.

Each year, as the holiday season approaches, G&W also makes donations to charities selected by its various operating regions. For the year 2022, the regions have selected organizations that work in the field of health, the fight against hunger and diversity.
