Our Philosophy

Giving back is an important part of the Emergen-C brand. Throughout our history we have donated over one million dollars to a variety of causes that have benefited both the community and environment. Our philosophy is simple – we give because we believe that we all have the power to make the world a better place. Helping others is simply part of who we are, our values, and why we do business.

Charity: water

Emergen-C transforms more than just water. We believe that access to clean and safe drinking water is a basic human right. Because clean water is so important to our product, we believe that having access to clean and safe drinking water is a cause that is fundamental to our brand values and it is a cause that we are passionate about. We are excited to announce we have made a multi-year commitment to helping to bring clean and safe drinking water to communities in Ethiopia through a partnership with charity: water.

Why Water and Why Now?

Over 663 Million people lack access to clean drinking water – a basic human need.

When a community receives access to clean water, it means improved health and better income and education opportunities – especially for women and children. To see how water transforms lives, watch this video:
