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 organisations 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 organisations that are meaningful to its employees—all things that are important to the organisation and what it stands for.

Corporate gifts
The Tanner Lectures on Human Values. The endowed lectureship at Oxford, Cambridge, Princeton, Harvard, Stanford, Yale, and the universities of Utah, Michigan, and University of California at Berkley, was established by Obert C. Tanner to “contribute to the intellectual and moral life of mankind.” 

The Gift of Music. Every other year, 44,000 complimentary tickets are given away to the Tanner Gift of Music, a two-night concert series featuring the Utah Symphony, Mormon Tabernacle Choir, and guest soloists. The 2013 concert featured singer-songwriter James Taylor. 

Fountains. We’ve donated more than 40 fountains as corporate gifts, fountains that now beautify the landscapes of schools, hospitals, parks, and universities around the country.

 

 Tanner Cares
Our Tanner Cares program offers financial assistance to employees in times of extreme need. The money comes from all employees. Whenever an employee contributes to a community charity, the company matches the donation dollar for dollar in Tanner Cares. 

In 2011, O.C. Tanner Canada introduced the Employee Donation Program, in which the Company gives $100 to each employee to donate to the charity they choose. In our inaugural year, these were the top 5 charities of choice:

Princess Margaret Foundation Ride to Conquer Cancer 
Canadian Cancer Society 
Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada 
Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation 
Heart & Stroke Foundation
