Through its Charitable Contributions Committee (CCC), Nikon is honored to support numerous charitable and non-profit organizations with employee involvement and financial contributions. While many national organizations and international relief efforts receive ongoing annual contributions, Nikon employees are also encouraged to recommend support for local and regional charitable endeavors.
In addition to numerous localized fundraisers including the American Diabetes Association’s Tour de Cure in Portland, and the San Francisco Bay Area Heart Walk, the company also hosts an annual food drive competition between regional offices – with the CCC providing funds to match employee contributions. During the holidays, Nikon volunteers also prepared and served meals at Loaves & Fishes Family Kitchen in San Jose. Loaves & Fishes Family Kitchen is committed to providing no cost, hot nutritious meals and support services to all needy individuals, with special concern for families, senior citizens and the homeless.
Last year, Nikon employees also organized an internal fundraiser for Typhoon Haiyan. Volunteer cooks prepared and donated delicious Filipino specialty foods, and hosted weekly luncheon fundraisers to collect more than $3000. These funds, along with another $10,000 from the CCC, were donated to the American Red Cross of Manila.
Additional organizations receiving contributions from Nikon include: the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, the American Cancer Society, The ASPCA, the Muscular Distrophy Association, World Wildlife Fund, the Alzheimers Association, and many more.
