As a national enterprise with roots in neighborhoods across America, we’re closely involved with our communities. We have a long history of outreach programs focused on sustaining our communities, helping charitable organizations fulfill their missions, and simply being good neighbors.
The foundation’s primary giving areas include: education, housing, fire and safety, domestic violence, and providing funds for operating expenses.
The foundation is active in the communities in which the company operates. Teams, composed of both salaried and hourly employees, at each locality, review and prioritize incoming requests for support. Each team considers it a privilege to provide support to their communities.
The foundation’s support is limited to public charities, as recognized by the IRS under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. In addition, the organization must meet the locality requirement to be eligible for consideration, supporting the foundation’s mission of giving back to the communities in which our employees live and work. All team recommendations are reviewed by the foundation board prior to approval.
Our employees understand the value of being good neighbors. The American Woodmark family believes that when we reach out a hand to help others, everyone benefits.
