Whirlpool Corporation is committed to maintain strong, lasting connections in the communities in which we do business.
Improving Lives through House & Home
maintains our resolve to provide shelter and security for individuals and families in need of safe, affordable housing as a first step in the journey toward a better life in the home. This includes our collaboration with Habitat for Humanity International®, our support for veterans with Homes for Our Troops, and helping secure temporary shelters to permanent homes for victims of disaster relief and domestic violence.
focuses on developing resilient, able communites through education and community development, in collaboration with United Way®, Instituto Consulado da Mulher®, and Boys & Girls Clubs of America. These programs directly help provide stability in the home and/or create career readiness to foster a vibrant community one home at a time.
Why We Give
Safe home environments help create life skills for job readiness and drive stronger success in life. Homeowner’s children have a higher high school graduation rate, are twice as likely to acquire some post secondary education, and are more likely to graduate from college, thereby earning higher wages.
Homeowners create more stability in neighborhoods, move less frequently than renters and therefore, are embedded into the same community for longer periods.
Houses create gathering places for people, and appliances enable them to eat healthier meals, and yield healthier neighborhoods.
Homeowners reap the financial gains of any appreciation in the value of their home, and tend to spend more time and resources investing in their residences.
