Community Involvement

Giving back is in our DNA. Our associates collectively volunteer tens of thousands of hours each year, including our summer interns at Teens Grow Greens in Milwaukee.

Giving Back to Our Communities

For more than 50 years, we have dedicated ourselves to the communities where we live and work. Through local business investments, philanthropic contributions and the volunteer service of our employees, we actively work to improve people’s lives and build thriving communities.

“Do what’s best for family, company and community. We are here to make a difference in this world.”

Making every community better

Embedded in our culture is a genuine mission to make every community better because we’re there. As a privately owned, Wisconsin-based company, this philosophy is anchored in the philanthropic spirit of the Johnson family.

Johnson Financial Group provides ongoing opportunities for associates to give back. Each associate is allotted paid time to volunteer in their local community. This inclusive approach provides flexibility so all associates can help meet the needs of community partners who benefit from our help throughout the year.
