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.

In 1995, the Board of Directors launched the American Woodmark Foundation, an employee-run organization that coordinates the company’s charitable giving activities.

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.

In addition to the foundation grants, our employees have many opportunities to volunteer their personal time and services to help improve the quality of life of fellow citizens in their communities. Some examples of employee involvement include partnering with Habitat for Humanity to build homes, holding food and collection drives to support local nonprofit organizations, serving meals at The Salvation Army, interacting with seniors at adult care facilities, assisting our nonprofit partners with projects that include painting, cleaning and yard work.

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.
