Community Involvement

From Our Backyard to the World

If we only existed to provide wireless solutions, we’d be less than the principles we stand for. For this reason, we commit ourselves daily to doubling-down—betting on our collective abilities to help improve lives, communities, and the broader world in which live. And this is no secondary passion. As the world grows smaller and more interconnected, we are neighbors to those whom we’ve never thought of in that way before. As the responsibility grows, we endeavor to meet it.

Below are several of the ways U.S. Cellular® and its associates are creating impact.

Education

In support of local K-12 educational programming—especially within the STEM disciplines: Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math—we partner with The Boys & Girls Clubs of America and National 4-H Council, both of which deliver superior instruction throughout our various markets. Through time, talent, and financial resources, we help ensure the efforts of these organizations create meaningful impacts in their schools, communities and broader world.

Doubling Our Associates' Generosity

U.S. Cellular associates have the biggest hearts in our industry. Through our Associate Matching Program, we match associates' charitable donations to nonprofit organizations dollar-for-dollar, up to $2,500 per year, with an annual cap of $250,000.

Volunteerism

We're not just in the business of connecting calls; we're also in the business of connecting people. The passion and energy of our associates are displayed daily as we volunteer at local schools and nonprofits in our communities. Organizations can register with VolunteerMatch.org for free to connect them with volunteers from a vast online network, which includes U.S. Cellular associates.

I am so thankful every day that I have the opportunity to be part of a company that truly cares not just about their customers and employees, but also about our community, and our future generations as well!
