TEAM Polaris is a corporate program that encourages philanthropic efforts by matching funds raised by 6 or more employees for an eligible 501©3 race or event.

During our annual United Way Campaign, we recognize one Polaris employee for exceptional volunteerism in the community. The winner receives $1,000 towards the non-profit of their choice.

Polaris empowers our people to give back to the community. In addition to volunteering initiatives put on by our teams, we give our full time employees 8 paid hours per year to volunteer.

In 2016, we designed and initiated the Polaris Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) Center for Excellence at Summit Bechtel Reserve, the Boy Scouts’ extreme adventure center in West Virginia. This Polaris training center features five safety training tracks and three miles of all-terrain vehicle (ATV) trails.

Our employees constantly find ways to get involved in our communities in fun and exciting ways. Here is one team rowing down the river…the team took home 2nd!

It was a little muddy back there, but a great day for a team ride. Full Time Polaris employees can participate in Team Rides once they pass all required Safety Training and other requirements. These rides are great ways to experience our products and enjoy time as a team outside of the office.
