Giving Back

Our neighbors depend on us, just as we depend on them, so we are committed to improving the quality of life in the communities in which we work. At Southwire, this goes beyond providing jobs and paying taxes; it means supporting those in need with time, talent and financial resources.

In 2022, Southwire celebrates 16 years since launching its 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, Project GIFT. Between Project GIFT and other monetary efforts from Southwire, the company has shown a significant emphasis on Giving Back through DEI-related efforts in the communities where our employees live and work.
