Committed to our community

Giving back is an integral part of the culture at TDS. From hands-on volunteering, to in-kind and financial support, TDS takes a vested interest in the growth and success of the communities we serve. In fact, community involvement is so imperative to our core beliefs that we started the “Be Good Citizens” program, which provides associates with 16 hours of paid time off every year to volunteer. However they choose to get involved, associates repeatedly tell us how they value the personal growth and satisfaction they gain from helping others.

Community outreach


To meet community needs, TDS created the LeRoy T. Carlson Pioneer Club’s Community Outreach Program. Yes, it's named after the founder of TDS! Nearly every month, this group promotes events and activities where associates can choose to donate their time and service.

Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation

TDS kicked off the first home game of the Madison Mallard’s baseball season by presenting a check to JDRF (the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation). TDS donated $25 for every base stolen during the 2017 season for a grand total of a $1,150 donation!
