Local Office Philanthropy
Our mission is to provide a platform where all Trimble employees can support their community by inspiring local offices to self-organize and engage in local philanthropy activities.
In addition to our overarching corporate giving areas, the Trimble Foundation will allow our local offices with 50 or more employees to define areas where Trimble’s resources can have the greatest impact in their communities. With more than 200 Trimble offices worldwide and more than 10,500 employees, Trimble employees can make a tremendous impact at the local level.
To inspire local action, the Foundation has developed a loose framework of guiding principles to help guide and “jump start” local office committees. It is our intention that local offices make the determination on what organizations or activities they would like to support.
Here are just a few examples of how Trimble employees are already making a difference
Habitat for Humanity
The Trimble Women’s Network Colorado chapter partnered with Habitat for Humanity for a Team Build Day at one of their construction sites.
ALK Day of Service
Members of the team spent the day planting trees for a charity focused on making cities greener.
Various members of the TMW office in Cleveland supported military families in the northeast Ohio area by participating in an annual holiday toy drive for military families and other various events.
Members of the Culture Club in Minnesota worked with local municipalities to adopt a section of the road for annual cleaning.
