Donations<br> and Social Contributions

Bridgestone Americas (BSAM) is committed to being a good corporate citizen nationally, regionally and in the communities we serve.

Bridgestone’s global commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility, Our Way to Serve, provides the framework by which all Bridgestone companies should prioritize donations and other efforts to add true value to teammates, customers, end-users and communities.

BSAM has established the Bridgestone Americas Donations and Social Contributions Committee (DSCC) to administer and continuously improve the process, budget and governance of donations and social contributions in alignment with Our Way to Serve, including the Bridgestone Americas Trust Fund and company resources.

While contributions are made to more than 150 organizations each year, both the Trust Fund and company donations are intended to focus on organizations with missions supporting Bridgestone’s three Priority Areas of Mobility, People and Environment. Over the past five years, the Bridgestone Americas Trust Fund has donated more than $12 million to charities across the country, impacting both national organizations and countless lives in 32 communities.
