Philanthropy & Community Investment: Giving Back

Philanthropy & Community Investment has been a core foundation since the beginning of Bacardi. The company and the Bacardí family provided local disaster relief assistance, built a new city library, and supported charitable organizations from its inception in 1862 through today. Bacardi continues to be committed to the communities in which we live and work. We encourage employees to volunteer time with local organizations and we support the many worthwhile charities in our towns working to better our communities. Our efforts to advance community initiatives are across four broad areas: Arts & Culture, Education, Environment and Health & Social Service.
