Philanthropy


Invest

Here at CCA and B (also known as the North Pole), we believe in creating joyful family moments. One of the most meaningful ways we do this is through the fulfillment of our philanthropic mission to:

"Positively impact the lives of children and their families—here and around the world—by providing for their basic needs, thus empowering them to create better communities and meaningful family moments."

Every year, we extend our support through the gift of product donation, financial contribution, sponsorship and the donation of employee time and talent to assist those in need. We work with nonprofit partners around the globe with a common goal to Invest, Impact and Empower.


Impact

In alignment with our philanthropic mission, we give investments of time, product and financial support to a host of local, national and global nonprofit organizations. To fulfill our goal to create better communities and joyful family moments, we look for that special opportunity to make a big difference in the lives of children and their families when selecting our partners. The organizations we support include the following:
