Employees volunteered more than 174,000 hours and personally gave $5 million. The Deere Foundation matched employee contributions.

Committed to alleviating hunger

Many types of nonprofits benefited from Deere donations such as the United Way and Habitat for Humanity. Nate Clark said that alleviating hunger is one of the foundation's highest priorities. Food banks serving all Deere communities received assistance including Des Moines, Waterloo, Dubuque, and the Quad Cities.
