Elkay has a long-standing tradition of giving back to the communities where we work, live and play. Our ELKAYcares program puts our money where our mouth is. Through our annual giving campaign, employees support over 70 highly-rated*, high-performing national charities that align with our values and our culture by supporting our giving pillars:
HEALTHY LIVING: We are committed to healthy living for our employees and their families, so we support organizations that focus on the health conditions that effect us most.
LIVING WELL: We give to our communities by supporting organizations that align with our business by offering shelter and fresh potable water to those who lack access to them, thus improving the quality of life of those in need.
PROTECTING OUR PLANET: Giving to our communities also means caring for the world we live in, and protecting the vital natural resources that our business depends upon.
COMPASSIONATE CARE: When tragedy strikes anywhere in the world, it strikes a chord in the hearts of all. Elkay employees support communities in their hour of need.
Employees can magnify the impact of their donations by participating in our annual campaign and taking advantage of the company's matching gift. Through small, but regular payroll deductions employees barely notice the difference in their pay – but the impact in the community is huge!
Not everyone is in the position to make a monetary commitment. Elkay also provides employees with 16 hours of paid volunteer time off to spend on charitable causes that they choose and to participate in company-lead volunteer events. Volunteer events help bring our employees closer together while helping our communities solve some of life's struggles and challenges.
*Elkay uses Charity Navigator to track the performance of the charities we support. Charities must be national in scope, utilize 75% of their proceeds in programs, and maintain at least a 3-star Charity Navigator rating.
