CHS Community Giving

CHS community giving

At CHS, we believe in the power of the cooperative spirit. Through CHS community giving, we strengthen hometown communities by supporting cooperatives with matching grants, providing funding for safety training and encouraging employees to volunteer.

CHS community giving programs will invest $5.3 million by the end of 2023 to strengthen hometown communities. Check out the CHS Stewardship Report to view our 2022 accomplishments.
