Employee financial contributions of up to $1,200 per year, made to eligible non-profits, are matched dollar for dollar by the Levi Strauss Foundation — for U.S. based employees.

Levi Strauss & Co. and the Levi Strauss Foundation support employee volunteerism and grant making in the communities where we work. Our employees worldwide have formed scores of Community Involvement Teams that partner with local charitable organizations to identify needs, plan activities, and create volunteer and donation opportunities.

Full-time, salaried employees in the U.S. may, with manager approval, schedule up to five hours per month of paid time away from the office to volunteer at a nonprofit organization of their choice.

Employees who actively serve on the board of a nonprofit, or have volunteered for at least one year, may apply for a Community Service Grant for their charitable organizations for up to $1,200 per year — for U.S. based employees.
Emergency Financial Assistance
The Red Tab Foundation isn't a benefit of employment at Levi Strauss & Co. Rather, it is an independent non-profit organization. It assists Levi Strauss employees, retirees and their families who face financial difficulty that threatens their ability to provide for the basic necessities of life. The Red Tab Foundation also provides educational programs and services to help people learn how to develop spending and savings plans and manage credit card debt.
