We donate to organizations that further the education of young people, fund research for treatments and cures of chronic disease, support veterans of the United States Armed Forces, and feed hungry children around the world.
Bluco Cares makes a special effort to help support organizations that our employees support. In addition to choosing events or fundraisers that benefit groups selected by our team, this year we developed a program that also matches a portion of employee donations to qualified charities.
It's important to me that Bluco Cares does what they do for these organizations. They contributed to a foundation that does research on a condition that affected my family personally, so it means a great deal to me.

I've been involved in education my whole life, so I feel proud serving students and teachers in any way that I can, whether it’s donating gently used supplies, or giving my own time.

My family rides on the trails along the Illinois Prairie Path all year long. I’m so glad to have a way to help keep those trails clean for everyone who enjoys biking or riding along them.

On a cool Saturday this September, 61 Bluco employees, family and friends came together to participate in a 5K Run/Walk to benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA). Bluco donated $25 to MDA for each person that completed the walk, for a total of $1,525 to be used toward the fight against neuromuscular disease. Muscular Dystrophy affects 250,000 people in the United States, including one of our own staff members. We hope this donation will help fund the research that someday brings about better treatments, therapies, and even a cure.
