The Toro Company believes that along with its industry leadership and financial success comes a responsibility to give back to the communities in which our employees live and work. Our employees around the world provide vital assistance to their communities by volunteering their time and talents. The company promotes volunteerism through its corporate volunteer programme, where full-time, salaried employees may volunteer up to 20 paid hours each year. In addition, the company provides domestic employees with diverse matching gift programmes. Our employees’ enthusiastic charitable ventures help make a real difference for those in need.

Community Engagement

United Way

  • The United Way, whose mission is to improve people’s lives by mobilising the caring power of communities, is one of the company’s primary partners across the world. Toro proudly supports the LIVE UNITED campaign to help our communities by focusing on education, income, and health. Each year, our employees donate generously through individual contributions and fundraising events. The Toro Foundation matches these contributions at least pound-for-pound and provides products for local auctions and charitable events that benefit the United Way. For the past three years, The Toro Company has been recognised as a “Million Dollar Partner” with the Greater Twin Cities United Way by raising over $1 million (£620K) through employee and company contributions.
