We have always been For those who make the world™. Moving forward, we are focusing our philanthropy initiatives on serving as a force multiplier to support and align with our business priorities—growing the trades, empowering our people and responding to events that need our tools and expertise.


Our longstanding support for youth-oriented initiatives continue, while we continue to refine our approach to focus on where we can make the greatest and most relevant impact.

In 2022, we are aligning with our focus on the trades. Tradespeople are a vital part of how communities, society and economies work for the benefit of all. That’s why we are refocusing our business on our core strengths that energize organic growth and elevate the needs of the tradesperson.
