Supporting the Communities We Serve

We recognize that a successful business and a successful community go hand-in-hand. Alliant is deeply committed to investing in our local communities and in the health and well-being of the people who live and work in each of them.

For almost 100 years, the Alliant organization has gone through countless changes and evolutions. One constant: our unyielding dedication to building up and supporting the diverse communities we serve. We believe that giving back is essential to our business. This is reflected in our passion and commitment to serving a wide array of causes, all while working to make a meaningful and long-lasting impact locally and in the world at large. Caring for others is not an option, but a necessity, and we strive daily to make this vision an inspiring and long-lasting reality.

Making a Difference

We can make a difference. It’s a commitment we are proud to live out each day in our business and in our community. From small, locally driven initiatives to large-scale, global efforts, each of us has the power to change lives and make the world around us a more inspiring place.

Running Against Pancreatic Cancer

Approximately 60,000 people are diagnosed with pancreatic cancer annually in the United States, according to the National Cancer Institute (NCI), and pancreatic cancer is the third leading cause of cancer death among men and women in the United States—accounting for about 47,000 deaths each year.

Alliant’s Jack Chen teamed up with Pancreatic Cancer Action, a national charity dedicated to saving lives by improving early diagnosis of pancreatic cancer and the quality of patient survival. This year, Jack was selected to run in the Berlin and London marathons, part of Abbott World Marathon Majors—held exactly seven days apart. As his training kicked into high gear, so did his fundraising. Through the generous donations collected, he was able to raise a total of $3,621 toward his team’s total of $55,400.


Support for Those Suffering from Crohn’s and Colitis

An estimated half million Americans are currently affected by Crohn’s Disease and colitis—conditions that can make even everyday activities challenging. To help make a difference, Danielle Rainone of American Benefits Consulting (an Alliant company) has worked hard to raise awareness and money to help fund a cure.

With Alliant’s support, Danielle and her family have raised more than $100,000 so far in 2022 through Take Steps, the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation’s largest peer-to-peer fundraising campaign. The funds raised will support vital treatment, research, and quality-of-life programs.

As the board president of the New Jersey Chapter of the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation for the past three years, Danielle has helped to raise more than $300,000 through Take Steps events, including Touch a Football at MetLife Stadium, the Cheers for a Cure Gala, and local community walks.

Alliant employees joined forces and raised a record-breaking $3.16 million in combined cash, food, and essential item donations in the company’s annual World Food Derby competition, making it our most successful Derby to date! In addition, employees across the nation rolled up their sleeves and contributed 1,882 volunteer hours as part of the competition.

Created to support the local and global communities, World Food Derby is Alliant’s annual initiative to fundraise and volunteer time to help end world hunger in conjunction with World Food Day on October 16. This year, the Derby was extended to culminate on November 29, Giving Tuesday.

2022 marks the 14th year Alliant has participated in World Food Day. Plans to make another meaningful impact in 2023 are already underway. #ZeroHunger #Alliant4Others

Alliant employees from across the nation join forces each year to fight cancer through our #AlliantStandsUp initiative. By coming together, we truly believe we can make a significant contribution to this important cause in the spirit of teamwork, competition, fundraising, and outreach.

Central to this effort is our annual “Brackets for a Cause” competition, where employees purchase and complete brackets for the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament, and the top three finishers select a cancer charity of their choice to receive the funds. The 2022 competition raised more than $14,000 in brackets purchased as well as individual donations from Alliant employees.

#AlliantStandsUp will continue to serve as a cornerstone of Alliant’s philanthropy efforts, and we are dedicated to supporting cancer charities nationwide through activities that are both fun and impactful.

We support the efforts of our employees through corporate giving and a matching gift program. We also encourage our employees to engage in community volunteer work through time served, mentoring, leadership, or simply lending a helping hand. We are proud that the diversity and geographical reach of the causes we support mirrors that of our dedicated employees, and we work continuously to broaden our efforts to support and serve those in need.
