Nikon truly believes that practicing good corporate citizenship supports our company vision. We are proud to be active partners in the communities in which we live, work, and serve to help support health and welfare, educational, environmental, cultural and civic needs. Through its Charitable Contributions Committee (CCC), Nikon supports a number of charitable and non-profit organizations with employee involvement and financial contributions.
Every September, employees in Belmont, California participate in the San Francisco Bay Area Heart Walk. Nikon employees raised over $10,000 in support of the American Heart Association last September. The company hosts a booth with promotional items for all walkers.
In addition, one of our Texas employees supports a yearly local charity golf tournament with the AT&T Pioneers. The Pioneers are a volunteer organization that supports a variety of children’s programs and local community involvement. Nikon aided fundraising through local employee participation in the golf tournament as well as Nikon donations to the prize pool to encourage participation.
During the past year, volunteers from Nikon Precision and Nikon Research Corporation of America have also provided ongoing assistance to local area foodbanks including Second Harvest. Nikon volunteers helped sort and pack food items for distribution in Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties. Furthermore, the Burlington, Vermont office – along with the CCC provided funds and matched employee contributions to the Vermont Foodbank taking a stand against hunger. In addition to the ongoing support of local foodbanks, volunteers served meals at Samaritan House in San Mateo, which assists low income families and individuals in that area.
Additional organizations with which we are involved include:
- Cystic Fibrosis Foundation
- American Diabetes Association
- The Humane Society
- World Wildlife Fund
- Leukemia and Lymphoma Society
- American Cancer Society
- Muscular Dystrophy Association

Nikon is proud to be an active partner in the communities we serve.
