Giving back is our pleasure

When asked how much he would be worth if he hadn’t given away so much, Publix founder Mr. George responded with a humble, “Probably nothing.” Mr. George loved serving our communities, and his legacy lives on as our associates do the same today through our corporate and local campaigns.
Publix associates come together to raise awareness and funds for organizations with local ties like Feeding America, United Way and others. Last year, Publix associates pledged $35.5 million to United Way. This was matched by a $26.5 million gift from Publix Charities, for a combined donation of over $62 million. This year, Publix Charities announced a $5 million donation to Feeding America member food banks, schools and other nonprofit organizations all focused on alleviating childhood hunger across Publix’s operating areas.
Giving back is part of our Publix culture. Read more about our dedication to being servant leaders and the other corporate campaignswe support.
