Macy's Inc is and has been involved in many different philanthropy projects over the years. They have a page on their website dedicated to this part of their company. It is something that is very important to the corporation. They have been around for many years and they have been very successful in their efforts of corporate social responsibilities.
"Collectively, contributions from Macy's, Bloomingdale's, the Macy's Foundation and the Bloomingdale's Fund of the Macy's Foundation - as well as employee contributions through workplace giving campaigns and customer contributions through our signature giving programs - totaled more than $71.2 million in 2009.
Across the company, our support helped sponsor important exhibits at museums, formed partnerships with symphonies, theaters and zoos to create educational and fun "family days," provided scholarships and mentoring for disadvantaged youth, raised funds for the fight against breast cancer, supported women's shelters, and rallied behind the HIV/AIDS cause with funding for testing, food banks and other support services."
This is just a small collection of philanthropy efforts on Macy's part. They have won countless awards since their first opened their doors and they continue to be a company that gives back.
