Corporate-Philanthropy Corporate-Philanthropy-Moble
Recognizing the importance of our responsibility beyond our business operations, we encourage and support our colleagues globally in their efforts to make positive contributions, through financial gifts and volunteerism, to the communities where they work and live. We amplify these efforts through matching programs, as well as through our own corporate giving.

Giving at ITW

Aligned with our decentralized culture, a significant portion of our giving is intentionally driven by the passion of our colleagues in the U.S. and Canada who give their talent, time and money back to their local communities where they live and work. Last year, ITW provided nearly $13.3 million through programs such as matching gift, volunteer and workplace giving campaigns, which give colleagues in the U.S. and Canada the opportunity to directly amplify their giving. ITW also supports communities through multi-year pledges, annual grants, scholarships and in-kind donations.

Over the last five years, ITW and its employees have invested $127 million into the community in focus areas such as health and human services, education and cultural institutions.


24,000 hours

ITW colleagues volunteered over 24,000 hours in their communities in 2018 to non-profits in the U.S. and Canada.


$8 million

Last year, ITW raised $8 million for charities through our matching gift and employee volunteer programs.


$7.2 million

ITW raised $7.2 million for United Way and its partner agencies in the 2018-2019 annual workplace giving campaign.

Our Partnership with United Way

For over 60 years, United Way has continued to be a key aspect of ITW’s community involvement strategy. Each year, we engage thousands of ITW colleagues across our U.S. and Canadian businesses, with 73 percent of colleagues contributing to United Way in 2018, and nearly $5.3 million invested into the communities where ITW has a presence and our colleagues call home.

ITW colleagues also dedicate their time in support of United Way. In 2018, more than 200 of our Chicago-based colleagues, interns, retirees and community partners participated in ITW’s Annual Day of Service. Over 700 hours were logged in a single day with meaningful volunteer efforts.
