For 22 years, Whirlpool Corporation has helped improve the lives of nearly one million people in more than 45 countries through supporting Habitat for Humanity® house builds, engaging in US advocacy efforts, and donating appliances. Now, we’re aiming to double our impact in five years.
1.6 billion people live in substandard housing around the world today. On top of this, one in ten people worldwide live in “distressed communities,” experiencing a perpetual cycle of low-wage jobs, education instability, inadequate transport and racial inequality.
To highlight the global need for safe and affordable housing that is also sustainable and weather resilient, Whirlpool Corporation, in partnership with Habitat for Humanity® International, kicked off our House + Home World Tour in 2021.
We will provide more than $6 million in funding and energy-efficient home appliances to Habitat affiliates across the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Hong Kong, Poland, the UK and the Latin America region in support of new home construction, repair and rehab projects.

Habitat Global Housing Forums
Whirlpool is sponsoring three Habitat global housing forums, bringing a spectrum of housing thought leaders and experts together to spur innovation that helps meet the housing needs of the planet’s growing population, increasingly severe weather events and changing climate norms. The first took place in May in the Latin America and Caribbean region. The Europe, Middle East and Africa region is scheduled to meet in November, and the Asia-Pacific region in December.
Build Better with Whirlpool
We kicked off the BuildBetter with Whirlpool initiative in June, which expands upon Habitat for Humanity’s efforts to help homeowners mitigate the impacts of climate change. Through the initiative, Habitat will build more than 250 climate-resilient and energy-efficient homes in partnership with hundreds of Americans in need of affordable housing over the next three years.
