At MAX, we are committed to making the communities we serve even better places to live, work, and play. From corporate donations to volunteering in our communities, we seek to make a difference and serve causes that matter most to you, our customers.

Throughout our 60 year history, MAX has supported hundreds of local non-profits with thousands of dollars in sponsorship, donations and grants. In 2016, MAX donated $40,000 to eight local non-profits.

The non-profits are:

- Alabama Shakespeare Festival

- BigHouse Foundation

- EAT South

- MANE

- The Montgomery Museum of Fine Art

- The Prattville Field of Dreams

- Storybook Farm

- W.E.L.C.O.M.E.

We are excited to see our community outreach programs continue to impact Central Alabama, East Alabama, West Georgia and beyond!

If you would like your non-profit organization to be considered as one of the local non-profits we support in the 2017, please visit our Community Giving Request page. 


We started the MAX4Kids Foundation®, a non-profit organization that was created in 2001 by MAX associates as a way to give back to our community. We started the MAX Capital City Classic, bringing the biggest college rivalry in the nation to Riverwalk Stadium, and the MAX Fireworks with the Montgomery Biscuits. We honor game-changers in our community with the MAX Community Achievement Award, an honor MAX gives annually at the MAX Community Reception. And you've probably heard of #MAXgives, where MAX donates money to the local non-profit organizations of your choice, selected by you — our community.





To Date This year, We've Volunteered Hours.

In 2015, nearly 200 MAX team members spent more than 1,800 hours serving the community through MAX volunteer efforts. From building homes for Habitat for Humanity to delivering meals to seniors through MACOA's Meals on Wheels Program, almost fifty organizations were impacted by the efforts. This year, MAX is hoping to beat that total by placing even more emphasis on our volunteerism programs.
