Community Betterment

Like you, John Deere understands the need for economic growth and how supporting community development can help make sustainable, lasting impacts. 


That's why John Deere works with local chambers of commerce and development groups to leverage the strengths of our communities, making them more attractive to potential employers. A thriving business environment with new and growing companies and added employment ultimately will improve the lives of all who live in the region. 


At John Deere, we promote community development by contributing our time, leadership and money to a variety of worthy not-for-profit organizations and programs.

While our primary relationships in the Human Services area are with United Way agencies, we also support other like organizations when appropriate. 


United Way 


With a mission to improve lives and make a positive impact in their individual communities, United Way organizations throughout the U.S. are supported by John Deere. Through United Way, we help promote the betterment and welfare of communities and residents where Deere has a major presence.

As part of our commitment to community betterment, John Deere supports strategic arts and cultural venues, both at the corporate and unit levels. Our commitment to fine arts and music is being recognized by the communities in which we have a presence.
