Crayola’s community engagement mission is to enrich the neighborhoods, schools and lives of families in the communities in which we live and work.
The intent of our philanthropy is to support local 501(c)3 nonprofit organizations and schools that nurture and foster creatively alive children in Lehigh and Northampton Counties in Pennsylvania and Phillipsburg, New Jersey. We want to ensure that children have their basic physical and emotional needs met. We believe this means giving them the time, space and opportunities to explore, pretend, imagine, create and question.
