Environment & Community Investment Fund (ECIF)

Dillon established the ECIF in 2009 as a means to support our environmental, social, and community impacts.

The ECIF, which amounts to over 1% of our pre-tax profits, encourages employees to develop and participate in local community, environmental, and wellness initiatives of their choosing. Each Dillon office has its own ECIF committee that works to allocate ECIF resources at a local level.

The fund serves as a catalyst for activities that encourage a culture of volunteerism, community engagement, and environmental sustainability. Critical to this program are our employees themselves, who volunteer their time, energy, and skills to better the communities and environments in which we live and work.

Some examples of local ECIF activities include volunteering, providing materials or food resources to a Habitat for Humanity project or a local food bank; the purchase of energy efficient appliances, composting equipment, or bike racks for Dillon offices, study materials for students tutored by Dillon employees; and entry fees for Dillon employees participating in races for charities.

Since the inception of this fund, Dillon has contributed nearly $2M to our local communities.
