Communities

Colgate-Palmolive has a long-standing commitment to supporting organizations in the areas where we live and work. Around the world, Colgate focuses our giving primarily on three areas where we believe we can make the greatest impact: health and well-being, education and natural resources. Many of our global programs leverage Colgate's expertise in oral health and personal hygiene to reach people in need. Colgate and Colgate individuals around the world contribute to organizations through financial support, product donations and volunteer time. In 2009, Colgate contributed over $20 million in cash to support community programs around the world. It also provided over $26 million in in-kind donations, including pet food provided through its Hill's Science Diet Shelter Nutrition Partnership.

   
Supporting Health and Well-being

For close to 100 years, Colgate has been involved in oral health education and preventive treatment programs, educating children and adults about good oral health practices and care. Colgate's largest and most comprehensive global oral health initiative is our oral health education program, Bright Smiles, Bright Futures.

Colgate partners with public health officials worldwide to reach millions of children annually with its "Clean Hands, Good Health" global handwashing program, which features Protex antibacterial soap. The Global Public Private Partnership for Handwashing with Soap aims to save the lives of children by reducing the incidence of diarrhea and pneumonia in poor communities.
