Church & Dwight Employee Giving Fund (EGF)

The Church & Dwight Employee Giving Fund, Inc. (“EGF”) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization which supports charitable organizations primarily in New Jersey and Eastern Pennsylvania, the region where our corporate headquarters is located and where many of our employees reside. The EGF is a workplace giving program, supported by employee contributions, which are matched dollar for dollar by Church & Dwight Co., Inc. The EGF provides our employees with the means to financially assist those who are less fortunate, to actively support and participate in the good works of not-for-profit organizations dedicated to that end, and to direct our contributions to their preferred charitable organizations.

Since its start in 2005, the EGF has evolved its scope and through employee volunteers is responsible for many philanthropic endeavors including the following:

  • Administration of the annual fundraising and grant evaluation process which has awarded almost 1500 grants totaling about $8.8 Million since inception.
  • Coordination of employee volunteering activities throughout the year, including EGF’s Annual Week of Service that had over 375 employees donate over 700 hours of service in our surrounding communities.
  • Management of charitable collections throughout the year, including backpacks for back-to-school in August and Toys for Tots™ in December.
  • Sponsorship of charitable fundraising efforts of individual employees and some of our partner agencies.

Our annual grants do not exceed $12,000 each and our average grant awarded in 2016 was approximately $6,500.
