The Newell Brands Charitable Foundation (NBCF) has completed its fourth annual Local Impact Grant Program (LIGP), our signature philanthropic program that puts the power of giving in the hands of Newell Brands employees.
Every year, employees in select locations are encouraged to nominate and vote for nonprofits doing important work in their local communities. Nominated organizations must meet certain eligibility criteria to be considered for a grant, including having a mission that aligns with one or more of our giving pillars: Child Safety & Development, Education, Hunger, Outdoor & the Environment and Diversity, Inclusion & Belonging.
LIGP provides us with the unique opportunity to celebrate our employees’ passions while making an impact in the communities where we operate.
After a record year of employee voting, we are pleased to announce this year’s LIGP recipients:

Bentonville, Arkansas :
Boca Raton/Miami, Florida:
Chicago, Illinois :

We look forward to partnering with these incredible organizations over the next year. We invite you to follow our Instagram , LinkedIn and Twitter for updates on our work with the recipients and visit the Our Communities page to learn more about how we strive to act as a force for good in the world.
