Gildan's Donation Policy focuses on two main areas: youth education and humanitarian aid in regions where Gildan operates.
At Gildan, we believe that investing in youth education can have a transformational impact as it builds job and life skills and prepares a whole generation to contribute to their own community. This is the primary focus of our community support activities.
We also know — unfortunately from direct experience — that some communities in which we operate are all too prone to natural disasters. However, by contributing funds and logistical support, we also know that we can help them overcome such events and rebuild.
Employee Donations Program
Gildan encourages and supports employee giving and volunteering.
Through the Gildan Employee Matching Grant Program, the Company matches donations and/or selected fundraising campaigns made by employees to charitable organizations in Canada, the U.S. and Honduras.
Through the Gildan Employee in the Community Program, the Company provides support to Canadian and American employees who volunteer their personal time to community projects. With this program, Gildan makes a donation in cash to the organizations with which employees do volunteer work.
