Inspired by #GivingTuesday Stories, Campbell & Company Gives Back


Although the official #GivingTuesday is over the giving continues. In celebration of #GivingTuesday, Campbell & Company requested submissions from people like you, asking to share how they contributed on this inspiring and “unselfie” day of giving.

Campbell & Company pledged to donate 25 dollars to four charities representing diverse missions.

For the second year in a row you surprised us with an incredible flow of responses and unconditional benevolence. We were delighted to hear so many caring stories come our way from all corners of the nation. Your stories varied from supporting veterans and your Alma mater, to backing social causes and promoting philanthropy by hosting events.

Many of you skipped Black Friday and Cyber Monday and gave back. Raeann Olsen-Jackson of Almost Home, made charitable gifts in honor of her friends and family at charities that they care about.

Jeff Pickering and his Kern Community Foundation used Guidestar DonorEdge data to produce a local Charity Giving Guide to encourage local giving in the rural California community. The guide was distributed to 30,000 households through The Bakersfield Californian newspaper. Their mayor and county board proclaimed December 3 "Giving Day."

Patty Franson made a gift to one of her favorite research causes, the Center for Investigating Healthy Minds at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Sally Zelonis donated to Gorilla Doctors in honor of Dr. Jan Ramer, a former senior vet at the Indianapolis Zoo. Powered by the non-profit Mountain Gorilla Veterinary Project and the UC Davis Wildlife Health Center, Gorilla Doctors' veterinary team is helping ensure the survival of mountain and Grauer's gorillas in Rwanda, Uganda, and the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Whether it was a donation of your time, effort or funds we applaud and thank you for your generosity and “unselfie” demeanor.

Campbell & Company donated $25 to each of the following organizations:

Almost home




Kern Community Foundation




Center for Investigating Healthy Minds



Gorilla Doctors
