TOGETHER WE CAN DO MORE
At Carhartt, we pride ourselves on working with like-minded organizations that provide us with the greatest opportunity to positively impact the communities we serve. We take the time to carefully hand-pick partners who share our desire to do the right thing, and our belief that actions speak louder than words. The organizations we partner with are committed to building a more diverse and sustainable future for all hardworking people.
Comprised of more than 150,000 military vets, first responders, and civilians, Team Rubicon volunteer Greyshirts are called upon in times of disaster to help communities prepare, respond, and recover. But the work these heroes do goes beyond rebuilding our communities. It also positively impacts the lives of military veterans transitioning back to civilian life by providing a renewed sense of purpose, community, and identity through volunteering. Recently, Team Rubicon announced the TRades Academy initiative, which will help veterans learn skills and gain the resources needed to forge a career in the homebuilding and construction sectors.
Since 2020, we’re proud to have the Carhartt Force® T-shirt recognized as the official grey t-shirt worn by Team Rubicon.
FOOD SECURITY EQUITY IMPACT FUND
Carhartt proudly supports the Food Security Equity Impact Fund established by Feeding America® to drive investments in communities of color impacted by food insecurity. The fund serves as a major step toward ending hunger through philanthropy that’s grounded in equity and community.

Operation bbq relief
Carhartt is proud to announce our new partnership with Operation BBQ Relief, a non-profit organization that delivers the healing power of BBQ in times of need, helping to feed first responders and communities affected by natural disasters. Using a coordinated network of volunteers and equipment across the country, Operation BBQ Relief can mobilize immediately following a natural disaster and be on the ground serving meals within 24-48 hours — ensuring no hero goes hungry.
HOME COOKING FOR HEROES
NATIONAL YOUNG FARMERS COALITION
The future of agriculture is important to Carhartt and our consumers. That’s why we’ve partnered with the Young Farmers Coalition whose focus is on equity, sustainable farming, and building community amongst young farmers.
Carhartt's support allows NYFC to add staff who can help shape the 2023 Farm Bill, advocating for younger farmers, and farmers of color.
Outdoor Industry Association
Carhartt is a participant in the Thrive Outside Initiative that exists to create a more inclusive and accessible outdoor experience by awarding capacity-building grants to help underserved families with repeat and reinforcing experiences outdoors. Starting in 2022, this initiative will benefit our home city of Detroit.
We also support the Outdoor Industry Association Initiatives as they lead climate action through the Climate Action Corps. We’ve made a commitment to measure, plan and reduce our greenhouse gas emissions, and share progress annually.
NATIONAL PARK FOUNDATION
We’ve entered a multi-year partnership to help preserve public lands for generations of Carhartt customers. The National Park Foundation (NPF), the official nonprofit partner of the National Park Service, raises private support to protect and enrich America’s national parks and programs, today and for years to come. As a supporting partner of NPF’s Communities and Workforce initiative, Carhartt is helping to strengthen service corps programs, local community, and workforce development organizations that provide on-the-job training for members, enabling them to develop leadership skills, build teamwork, and learn about public lands career paths. Recently, we launched “Come Work Here,” a nationwide public awareness campaign created to raise awareness around the powerful learning experiences for young adults who want to embark on careers in public land management, outdoor recreation, natural resource conservation, and more.
