Launched in 2017, The Big Pitcher is our corporate giving platform designed to give back to the causes that mean the most to us on a national, regional and local level. Check out some of those causes below and know that when you support Founders you’re also supporting our efforts to improve this world for future generations.

On a national level, we have partnered with the Conservation Alliance, an organization whose vision is to protect and restore America’s wild places.

On a regional level, we will continue to give to causes that fall within four core categories: Social Justice, Environment, Arts & Culture and Active Lifestyle.

On a local level, we will support various local organizations on a month-by-month basis, leveraging the Founders Family and the local community to help with volunteering efforts, service days, fundraising and more. Additionally, Founders will match all employee donations to various local organizations. Some of those organizations include:

Tribute on the Grand

We have long supported Grand Rapids Whitewater and their efforts to restore the Grand River to its original beauty. Tribute on the Grand is an opportunity to highlight the river restoration project and provide the opportunity for our community to help support the effort through time and charitable contributions.

Tribute on the Grand is an annual event that takes place in Ah-Nab-Awen Park, in August.
