POET Gives Back

Leading with a servant’s heart is embedded in POET’s company culture. We strive to live out this mission beyond our workplace to leave the world better than we found it.

Through POET Gives Back, we have the opportunity to unite our calling to be good stewards of the Earth with our passion to love our neighbors. Our goal? To create lasting impact by spurring community development, cultivating individual growth, and serving the greatest needs of others.

POET Gives Back has implemented
Three Pillars of Giving to guide our efforts:

The Earth

The Earth

We aspire to create a world with natural balance, where we no longer take from our planet, but rather utilize its enormous ability to regenerate. That’s why we use the sun, the soil, and the seed to produce clean, renewable biofuels and bioproducts.

We partner with organizations who share in our mission to preserve a cleaner, healthier environment for future generations.

“The highest heavens belong to the Lord, but the earth He has given to mankind.” Psalm 115:16


The Community

We believe that changing the world for the better starts in the communities we call home. To cultivate widespread impact, we must start by nurturing our roots – our friends, families, and neighbors.

We support individuals and organizations that are committed to lifting up their local communities by serving those who need it most.

“Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.” 1 Peter 4:10

Next Generation

The Next Generation

POET believes that every child deserves to be nurtured and protected and that – with the right opportunities and a little encouragement – each young person has the ability to achieve great things.

We strive to cultivate creativity, confidence, and compassion in the next generation by providing support for disadvantaged youth in our communities.

“Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.” Proverbs 22:6
