Community touch

Community Wellness

Promega defines community wellness in a broad sense

from strengthening the physical and mental needs of the

individual to addressing a multitude of social needs in

the community.

In support of the diverse interests of our employees and

the diverse needs of the community, each year Promega

matches employee giving in the annual United Way and

Community Shares campaigns that are offered on the

Madison campus. Similar programs are also offered at

Promega branches to encourage contributions

and volunteering:

Promega UK operates an annual

program to support local charities that

has recently included ‘Naomi House’

for terminally ill children, ‘Guide Dogs for the Blind’ and

‘MacMillan Nurses’ supporting cancer patients at home.

Promega corporate headquarters also supports an

in-house aluminum can recycling program to benefit

young adults with special needs in Wisconsin. AdamCan

Recycling is a start-up business that will enable these

young adults to be self-employed and active members

of society.
