THE SAINT-GOBAIN CORPORATION FOUNDATION
The Saint-Gobain Corporation Foundation provides financial support for charities and educational institutions through plant community gifts, matching gifts, and direct grants programs to communities throughout North America. This program provides nearly $1 million in funding to hundreds of non-profits annually, and Saint-Gobain employees donate food, clothing and toys. They also volunteer time for community work parties, walkathons, and food drives.
We’ve built powerful, creative partnerships with a variety of people and programs that achieve real results and uplift lives. Here are some of the ways we get involved:
We donate funds, building materials, and employee volunteer hours to projects in Worcester, Philadelphia, Schenectady, and Canton.
United Way of Central Massachusetts
Saint-Gobain offers ongoing support and a leadership role in the community.
Girls Inc. of Worcester
For this local non-profit, we donated all the supplies and labor needed to refinish a gymnasium floor and our Women’s Network participated in events and mentoring programs.
Support for our local Fire and Police Departments
Employees of our plants have donated hazmat protective garments to their community hazmat teams, provided meals for local emergency response and also allowed access for local fire departments to train on a variety of response efforts.
CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
Making the world a better place requires a consistent commitment on the part of everyone: Individuals, communities, governments, and corporations throughout every industry. At Saint-Gobain, we consider this a part of our mission to improve the quality of the human experience where people live, work, play, move, and heal. For this reason, we take extraordinary measures to ensure that with every action, we are mindful of our impact upon the people, places, and things that matter to all of us.
