ELKAYcares is Elkay’s annual approach to giving back to the community. Each year, the ELKAYcares campaign is run throughout November and December, and encourages employees to donate what they can to a variety of charities. Employee donations are then magnified through the company’s dollar-for-dollar match to further enhance its impact. This year, the donation plus match resulted in a total of $161,894.08 donation to those charities serving the communities where we work, play, and live.
For those not in a position to make a monetary donation in a given year, Elkay offers employees additional ways to give back to their communities including paid volunteer time off and a skills-based volunteer program. Through this variety of community engagement opportunities, Elkay fosters growth and connection between employees while helping those in need within Elkay’s communities solve some of life’s challenges.
“At Elkay, giving back is an important part of our culture, and I’m incredibly proud of what our ELKAYcares annual giving campaign has achieved,” states Elkay President and CEO Ric Phillips. “To raise over $161,000 in funding for non-profits this year and over $5 million in the last ten years is no small feat and could not have been achieved without the consistent heartfelt participation from all members of the Elkay family.”
The non-profits that are being supported through ELKAYcares for the 2021-2022 year include Creating Healthier Communities (representing over 60 health-related non-profits), Splash, Elkay Family Foundation, Habitat for Humanity, Living Lands & Waters, Thurgood Marshall College Fund, Operation Homefront, United Way and Equal Justice Initiative.
