About Our Foundation:
In 1985, the IDEAL INDUSTRIES Foundation was created to give back to the communities where we do business. Following the lead of our founder, J. Walter Becker, our charitable organization aims to support communities in health, human services and animal welfare, arts and education, economic development, environmental sustainability and diversity and inclusion. From aiding food banks to youth groups to family service agencies, our grants have had broad and meaningful impacts on the communities we serve. In 2020 the foundation is operating in the US and we are pleased to announce that we’re expanding the program globally in 2021.
The IDEAL INDUSTRIES Foundation operates on five core values:
Inclusiveness – We provide equal access to charitable resources for all of IDEAL’s employees worldwide.
Stewardship – We recognize the importance of stewarding assets, not only to ensure that the funds are managed properly, but that the charities must also be responsible stewards of the resources that they receive.
Transparency – We require and encourage open communications to businesses, families and the employees from the charitable organizations.
Engagement – Through charitable work, we encourage our employees and their families to gain insight into different needs in their local and global communities. We desire for them to develop an emotional return for all.
Cohesion – We help bring the company, families, employees, and their communities together through giving.
To be eligible for the IDEAL INDUSTRIES Foundation Grant, applications must be documented from a 501(c)3 organization. They should also fit into one of these five pillars: 1) health, human services and animal welfare, 2) arts and education, 3) economic development, 4) environmental sustainability and 5) diversity and inclusion. We do not support religious-based organizations or those who don’t meet our core values.
