Making a difference

"In our busy lives, it can be a real challenge to find the time to get out into our communities and give back. That's probably why one of our most popular benefits is our volunteerism program. Tom's employees are able to use 5% of their paid work time volunteering for the nonprofit organization of their choice."

- Laurie Bridges, Tom’s of Maine Human Resources Manager

Who isn’t busy, right? Maybe you’re in school and trying to stay on top of homework, or you’re working, or juggling family and career obligations. Whatever your situation, chances are you really want to volunteer in your community but you may not always have the time to do as much as you’d like.

That’s why we developed our 5% volunteer benefit. Our employees have done plenty of volunteering: we have employees who work at historical societies, build homes for Habitat for Humanity, maintain trails and facilities at state parks, and help an elderly neighbor to shovel snow. We also volunteer as a company every year.

America needs Dental Health for All

Tom's of Maine Social ResponsibilityFor 120 million Americans without dental insurance, a bright, healthy smile is a luxury. The 2000 U.S. Surgeon General's Report on Oral Health tells the story. Patients can wait up to 12 months for an appointment at a public clinic. Many show signs of periodontal or gingival disease and it's not unusual to see 3-year olds needing multiple root canals due to rampant decay.

Sharing 10% of our profits: Our giving for Goodness Grant Program

We donate 10% of our profits each year to nonprofit, community based organizations committed to human, healthy and environmental goodness. We believe that people are the critical element in the success of a mission and these nonprofits know best how to serve the needs of their community. So we work with agencies to ensure funding is going where it’s needed the most and then we get out of the way!

We are not accepting any grant, sponsorship, or product donation requests at this time. We invite nonprofits to apply for our 50 States for Good™ program and to follow us on Facebook to keep updated on new programs and goodness initiatives.
