Sustainability takes many forms at AT&T*: engaging in the communities around us, reducing our environmental impact, and investing in technologies to make the world a better place. Each year we highlight these commitments and others in our Annual Sustainability Update, which captures our work from the past year through a variety of features and downloadable materials.
Key numbers — in Minnesota
More than $353 million invested by AT&T in its best-in-class wired and wireless networks in Minnesota from 2013-2015.
More than 11,200 hours of personal time given by AT&T employees and retirees in Minnesota to community outreach activities in 2015 - worth more than $255,000.*

Hennepin County Sheriff Rich Stanek (L) joins with AT&T Minnesota State President Paul Weirtz to launch the Protect My Cell Phone Campaign at the AT&T store at Calhoun Square in February. The goal is to educate the public about the increase in mobile phone thefts and provide information on steps people can take today to protect their phones and safeguard their personal information.
AT&T presented a $95,000 contribution in March to the Hmong American Partnership in St. Paul to expand the nonprofit’s YouthLEAD program to serve more students. The program helps at-risk Hmong youth stay in school and achieve academic and career success.

Supporting our colleagues and neighbors in Louisiana
As recovery efforts continue in the aftermath of unprecedented flooding in South Louisiana, we want to do our part:
- AT&T wireless customers can text “RELIEF” to 80077 to donate $10 to the Baton Rouge Area Foundation Louisiana Flood Relief Fund to support those affected and the most urgent local needs as we work to restore the community. No text message fees apply. Your $10 donation will appear on your wireless bill or be deducted from your prepaid balance. AT&T employees choosing to participate should text from non-COU devices.
- AT&T will also make a $25,000 donation to the Baton Rouge Area Foundation Louisiana Flood Relief Fund, directing support to the most urgent needs related to this tragedy.
- AT&T will contribute $100,000 to assist in recovery efforts, making a $50,000 donation to the Baton Rouge Area Foundation (BRAF) Louisiana Flood Relief Fund and a $50,000 donation to Donors Choose. The BRAF Louisiana Flood Relief Fund is assisting with most urgent needs related to this tragedy, and Donors Choose is assisting affected schools in support of teachers and students.
