Since its inception in 1991, Capella Education Company has been dedicated to giving back to the communities we operate in. Through a variety of initiatives, as shown below, Capella has developed a strong company culture around this commitment to corporate responsibility.
Together for Good
Together for Good is Capella University’s employee giving campaign. Through a spirited two-week campaign, run on an annual basis, employees are given the opportunity to participate in fundraising events, become educated on the needs that exist in their communities, and to be part of the solution to meeting these needs. Over the last ten years, Capella employees have raised almost $1,000,000 and have contributed countless hours to the campaign and community organizations. Learn more

Capella students are inspiring. As they share their experience with others, they inspire all of us to work towards something meaningful. We created the Inspire Giving program to encourage students and alumni to share their stories and connect Capella to their community. When they do, Inspire Giving points are awarded to support the organizations they care about. Each point represents $1 that Capella will donate to the nonprofit or public school of their choice.
