When we contribute to an organization, we want to ensure the donation aligns with our values, pursues growth within the organization and drives an increased value for our community. This isn’t just about giving; it’s about engaging. When we choose an organization to contribute to, we look for an opportunity that is community-focused, mutually beneficial and conducive to growth through engagement.
Our social responsibility programs weave company, community, and commitment where we operate around the world. Together, we respond to the needs of our local communities. We make direct donations to programs aligned with our core values and charitable giving philosophy globally. But it is important that we provide our associates with ways to engage in our communities beyond a check.
We strive to cater to specific projects rather than invest money in the administration of an organization. Hillenbrand does not give to the following areas:
- Political donation requests
- Personal donation requests
- Donation requests to fund positions
- Sports teams
BUILDING SUSTAINABLE COMMUNITIES
Hillenbrand cares about our communities. Through various initiatives, including the One Campaign, Hillenbrand seeks to increase quality of place, which encapsulates the idea that communities with strong foundational elements like industry, quality hospitals and exceptional school districts provide a welcoming and sustainable environment that attracts families to live and work. Elements like arts and culture fit within a broader placemaking and workforce strategy. Hillenbrand makes strategic decisions to support the communities that it operates within.
Please click “Request a Donation” to begin the process of filling out a donation request form. The donation request will be reviewed at the next Corporate Giving Steering Committee Meeting and a representative from the company will notify you if your request has been approved or denied. Decisions regarding donations are at the sole discretion of Hillenbrand. Please be mindful that not every request will be fulfilled, as resources are limited.
