Corporate Citizen of the year – Finalist

Acuity Charitable Foundation

2800 S. Taylor Drive, Sheboygan

Over the past eight years, Acuity and the Acuity Charitable Foundation have donated approximately $12 million to local organizations and charities, including $3 million in 2015 alone.

In addition to its annual contributions, at the end of each year Acuity takes a designated portion of its charitable dollars and distributes them among six charities.

According to Kelly Candotti of the American Cancer Society, each organization has an opportunity to share its story with Acuity employees nationwide. Employees then vote for the organization they feel had the most impact. Dollars are designated based on the number of votes.

Acuity has supported the American Cancer Society since 2011.

In December 2015, the American Cancer Society earned the largest number of votes and received nearly $95,000 from the Acuity Charitable Foundation.

In the past, the foundation has supported charities including the Aurora Health Care Foundation, Bookworm Gardens, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Lakeshore Community Health Center, Mead Public Library Foundation, Meals on Wheels, Safe Harbor Crisis Center, Junior Achievement and many others.
