The Wonderful Company has launched its first-ever Corporate Social Responsibility website highlighting co-founders Lynda and Stewart Resnick’s philanthropic approach of place-based giving, which focuses on listening to, investing in, and collaborating with communities where employees live and work, from California’s Central Valley to the islands of Fiji and beyond.

The comprehensive collection of nearly 100 stories, articles and immersive video delve into the strategies, community partnerships and real-world outcomes of the Resnicks’ philanthropic initiatives, through their foundation and The Wonderful Company. It also shares insights into their focus on investing in the whole person and the social determinants of a healthy society, including education, health and wellness, economic mobility, environmental sustainability, and arts and culture.

Across the site, visitors can learn more about a wide range of initiatives and hear directly from community partners, residents, Wonderful Education scholars, and employees who all play critical roles in this Corporate Social Responsibility work.

“Philanthropy is central to the DNA of The Wonderful Company, and we are proud of what we have been able to achieve working closely with communities and our employees,” said Lynda Resnick, co-owner and vice chairman of The Wonderful Company, who oversees the company’s philanthropy. “Sharing our approaches, learnings and strategies will hopefully offer insights to others as they chart their own philanthropic course. Our belief is that true success comes from doing well by doing good. We start by making a difference in our own backyards.”

The easy-to-navigate site offers readers a variety of jumping off points for further exploration:

  • Wonderful Giving allows employees to direct up to $1,000 of company giving annually, channeling more than $56 million to roughly 7,800 nonprofits since its creation in 2006.
  • Education offers students free, high-quality education across California’s Central Valley, from preschool to college and career pathways. This work also includes founding and building two Wonderful College Prep Academy public charter schools in the region.

  • Health and Wellness provides free health and wellness services to employees and their families at our plants and in the orchards via mobile clinics.
