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.

In response to the crisis in Ukraine, Alliant and its employees across the U.S. worked together to raise more than $210,000 to support a range of critical humanitarian efforts. The funds raised will be used to provide life-giving necessities like food, water, shelter, and first aid.

Alliant partnered with the American Red Cross and UNICEF to solicit donations. Employees responded, raising more than $110,000 with Alliant stepping in on a $100,000 match. The match program also covered additional organizations providing humanitarian support and vital resources to the country and its citizens.

This effort is part of Alliant’s ongoing commitment to helping those in need both in our own communities and across the globe.

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.

Alliant employees from across the nation once again rose up and joined forces to help communities in need for the 2021 version of our World Food Derby competition. Together, we raised $228,851 in combined cash, food, and essential item donations and contributed nearly 400 volunteer hours in honor of World Food Day.

For this year’s competition, which was extended to culminate on November 30, Giving Tuesday, Alliant employees participated in a range of activities, including donating food, cash, and essential items as well as volunteering at food banks, shelters, and other community organizations. Employees also donated to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund, supporting at-risk communities at home and abroad.

This marks the 13th year Alliant has participated in World Food Day. The total combined cash, food, and essential item donations for our 2020 and 2021 World Food Derby competitions were $740,286. #ZeroHunger.

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.
