Capital One provides funding to Evergreen's Brickworks Project for a classroom to teach children about the environment and we also contribute to the children's playground area. We provide funding for the Learning Grounds program, which greens the playground of two schools every year. Capital One associates also get hands-on experience with environmental sustainability during Evergreen's annual tree planting initiative.
