Helping Habitat for Humanity Build in Our Hometown

A stable home provides a foundation for families to thrive. Through Andersen’s nearly three decades of work with Habitat for Humanity, we have seen firsthand how affordable homeownership transforms lives and communities.

This summer, a few of our employees will spend 18 days volunteering with Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity to help build a new home in Bayport, Minnesota. These volunteers will contribute more than 1,500 volunteer hours and many will get the opportunity to install our very own windows in the home. Through Andersen’s longstanding partnership with Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity, the company provides donated product or discount for every home they build or renovate.

A Focus on Affordable Housing

Corporate citizenship is one of Andersen’s core values and has been part of the company’s history since its founding nearly 120 years ago. Andersen has a long-standing commitment to supporting programs that provide critical housing support in the communities in which employees live and work.

For more than 25 years, Andersen has focused philanthropy and volunteerism on affordable housing and housing equity through its support of Habitat for Humanity. Through this collaboration, Andersen helps families build strength, stability and self-reliance through homeownership.

In 2021, Andersen and the Andersen Corporate Foundation donated $100,000 to Habitat for Humanity International, in addition to its support of affiliates across the country in communities where Andersen employees live and work. Since 1995, the company has donated more than $7 million to Habitat affiliates through philanthropy, window and door donations and employee volunteerism.
