Employee Engagement: Our employees contribute their time and resources to promote causes they are passionate about. Employees worldwide sponsor local events and partner with organizations to support their local community needs. Lincoln Electric and its subsidiaries support many of these initiatives through corporate giving.
Employee Gift Matching Program: The Foundation also supports the Lincoln Electric Employee Gift Matching Program, which supports U.S. employees with the opportunity to double their donation to the nonprofit of their choice. Employees’ gifts are matched dollar-for-dollar up to $1,000 annually.
Disaster Relief: We partner with customers and local nonprofits to support disaster relief efforts. In 2017, we worked with the American and Mexican Red Cross organizations to provide assistance to communities in Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico and Mexico.
In Kind Gifts: Lincoln Electric provides in product donations (in kind gifts) to nonprofit organizations to support programs such as the Boy Scouts welding merit badge, as well as skilled trade programs and fundraising events.
Nonprofit Board Engagement: We encourage executive engagement on nonprofit boards to be a resource to support the mission of our local partners and help make a positive difference in our communities.
