A stable home provides a foundation for families to thrive. Every family needs a place to call home, but for many families, systemic inequities in housing policies and racial discrimination in housing continue to prevent families from achieving the goal of homeownership. Andersen Corporation is a corporate partner supporting Habitat for Humanity International in its work across the United States to close the racial equity gap in housing.
In our communities
Corporate Community Involvement
For over a century, our vision has been to make the world a better place by living up to the promise that everyone benefits from their association with Andersen. This promise includes the communities where we live and work. We are proud to give back to our communities, and to inspire possibility by empowering people and communities to achieve their full potential.
Andersen partners with nonprofits addressing housing, education, and basic needs in the communities where our employees live and work. Andersen corporate giving is currently by invitation only.
Andersen donates windows and doors to nonprofits focused on affordable and accessible housing projects in the communities where our employees live and work.
Andersen employees give back to their neighbors and communities by volunteering their time and skills to the causes important to them. Volunteerism efforts have included homebuilding projects, environmental restoration efforts, youth education and enrichment activities, food shelf support and food packing events, blood drives, and service on nonprofit boards of directors, among others. Andersen supports employee volunteerism by matching employee hours of service with monetary donations to eligible nonprofit organizations.
