Giving back

Our founder, Obert C. Tanner, measured the company’s success by asking his accountant, “What’s our giveability this month?” His intention echoes in our hearts and halls today. It’s why we donate our time to organizations in need, our effort to improve our communities, and 10% of company profits to philanthropic causes.

O.C. Tanner’s charitable strategy is to support the environment, arts, education, children, and organizations that are meaningful to its employees—all things that are important to the organization and what it stands for.

Corporate giving includes:

The Tanner Lectures on Human Values provides an endowment gift to Oxford, Cambridge, Princeton, Harvard, Stanford, Yale, and the universities of Utah, Michigan, and University of California at Berkley.

Our Tanner Cares program offers financial assistance to employees in times of extreme need, with the company matching employee donations dollar for dollar.

The Tanner Gift of Music gifts 44,000 complimentary tickets to a two-night concert series featuring the Utah Symphony, The Tabernacle Choir at Temple Square, and guest soloists such as James Taylor, Brian Stokes Mitchell, and Megan Hilty.
