Corporate Responsibility and Charitable Giving Program

The mission of Piedmont’s Corporate Responsibility and Charitable Giving Program is not only to provide the highest quality services to our tenants on daily basis,but also to help meet the needs of each local comunity that we serve by volunteering and/or financially supporting programs related to medical or human needs and children’s programs that improve the overall quality of life (particularly through charities tied to the real estate industry or our tenants).

Piedmont W. Wayne Woody Foundation

In 2015, Piedmont created the Piedmont W. Wayne Woody Foundation in honor of our late Chairman of the Board, W. Wayne Woody through which charitable contributors are distributed to various nonprofit organizations. Recipient organizations are 501(c)(3) entities that fit our charitable giving categories and demonstrate fiscal/administrative stability, including being non-discriminatory and non-political.

In honor of our first responders, the Piedmont W. Wayne Woody Foundation has made donations to various charitable organizations that are directly assisting in the battle against COVID-19 in each of our markets as follows:

Piedmont Volunteerism





In addition to financial contributions through the PWW Foundation, Piedmont recognizes the value and benefit of employee volunteerism and fully appreciates its positive impact on the community, the employees, and ultimately, the Company by promoting team building, collaboration, and unity. To promote volunteerism among Piedmont employees, the Company provides a matching program whereby an employee may request time away from work to support a community service project or activity. Preference is given to those organizations that are tied to real estate industry programs or that have a major tenant sponsorship. Our employees have partnered with Piedmont to donate thousands of dollars and hours annually to numerous organizations. Here is just a sampling of the many organizations we have supported:
