At Wolverine Worldwide, we believe that when you serve numerous communities, you don’t divide your commitment, you multiply it. For this reason, we established the Wolverine Worldwide Foundation, which today supports more than 190 charitable organizations that impact communities around the world, like United Way, Two Ten Footwear Foundation and The Conservation Alliance.

The spirit of community that permeates our company is also evident among Wolverine Worldwide team members. It is reflected by our associates’ thousands of volunteer hours and the substantial financial support given to those in need of assistance in the communities where we live and work. Every effort underscoring our belief that when we act together to do great things, great results are inevitable.

As a company providing innovative footwear, apparel and accessories to consumers around the world, Wolverine Worldwide takes seriously its commitment to make the world a better place. Rooted in the responsibility to contribute positively to the communities where we work and live, the Wolverine Worldwide Foundation was founded in 1959 to support our charitable initiatives.
