HOW WE ARE MAKING A DIFFERENCE
Building Homes for Heroes
Valvoline again partnered with Building Homes for Heroes in 2020 to provide an army veteran a new home. Building Homes for Heroes is an organization that builds or modifies homes and gifts them—mortgage-free—to veterans and their families. The veteran’s new home includes a renovated and fully outfitted garage donated by Valvoline. We customized this part of the home to fit the individual’s love of woodworking with open shelving, work cabinets, tools, equipment, and Valvoline-branded items. Valvoline’s rebate program, through our retail partner, Advanced Auto Parts, also resulted in $50,000 being raised for this charity that aligns with our support for veterans.
RAISED FOR BUILDING HOMES FOR HEROES
Global Giving Campaign
Our Global Giving Campaign resulted in over $694,000* raised for charities, a record amount for Valvoline. Teams participated in events such as a virtual 5-K and an Ugly Sweater Contest to keep things exciting in spite of having to conduct the campaign virtually. Valvoline’s Global Giving Campaign is an annual event that includes a combination of team member gifts and Valvoline corporate matches for qualifying non-profit organizations that align with our giving pillars.
*Reflects total from FY 2021
Education is one of Valvoline’s giving pillars. In 2020, we were proud to continue our support of Transylvania University, a nationally ranked liberal arts college located in Lexington, Ky. The Valvoline Game Room, in the center of the newly remodeled campus center, is a spot where students can relax, participate in e-sports gaming, or play pool or ping-pong.
RAISED FOR CHARITIES
As we continue to expand our geographic footprint, Valvoline’s foundational commitment to citizenship remains constant.
