Nordson Impact Community Outreach

Nordson's community outreach programs are dedicated to improving the quality of life in our communities by improving educational outcomes that enable individuals to become self-sufficient, active participants in the community.

Nordson Impact LogoAt Nordson, we have a long and proud history of giving back to the communities where we live and work. We strongly believe it is our responsibility as a corporate citizen to share our success with our communities, which is why we donate 5 percent of our U.S. pre-tax profits to support charitable endeavors every year. As we grow, we continue to positively impact more people each year through volunteering, donations, scholarships and more.  

We encourage all employees to make a difference in our communities in the ways that are most meaningful to them. We provide opportunities to get involved through six community engagement programs that together create The Nordson Impact.
 
Nordson Corp Foundation

The Nordson Corporation Foundation awards grants to non-profits in our communities throughout the United States. Since 1989, the Foundation has awarded more than $60 million in grants to improve the quality of life in our communities, placing a special focus on causes related to education. Employees support the foundation by making donations during our annual A Time to Give Campaign, or by participating in a Community Affairs Committee (CAC). Committees review grant applications and vote to distribute Foundation funds to deserving local causes. During the last financial year, the Foundation gave out 362 grants totaling $6.3 million.

Time n Talent

Time ‘n Talent represents Nordson’s employee volunteer efforts worldwide, including general and skills-based volunteering, participation in our major “Big Build” construction projects or non-profit board service. Our employees volunteer thousands of hours to local organizations each year. Within the last year, employees have organized and participated in more than 140 projects, equaling more than 7,400 hours. Nordson also supports employees who volunteer with an organization for 40 hours in a year by making a $500 Dollars for Doers grant to that organization. In 2017, we granted $12,500 to 24 organizations through this program. 

Time to Give

A Time to Give is our annual employee giving campaign in the United States. Teams of Nordson volunteers across the country plan localized campaigns involving pledge drives, fundraising events, volunteer events through Time ’n Talent and more. Nordson matches all funds raised during the campaign, whether they go toward the Nordson Corporation Foundation, United Way’s general fund or other non-profits – doubling the campaign’s impact. Last year, our campaign raised more than $1.1 million for our communities. 

Nordson Builds Scholarships

Nordson BUILDS Scholarships support college students residing or attending college near a Nordson facility and pursuing majors related to manufacturing. Our goal is to help students from our communities build brighter futures for themselves, and to develop a diverse, highly-skilled talent pool for the future. Last year, more than 140 students received scholarships ranging from $2,000 to $10,000.

Matching Gifts

Matching Gifts doubles the donations Nordson employees or retirees make to non-profits in the United States. Nordson matches any donation of $25 or more to qualified educational, cultural, civic or human welfare organizations up to a total of $10,000 per calendar year per individual. Gifts of securities, real estate or other tangible property are also eligible for matching funds when their current market value is clear. In 2017, we made matching contributions of $726,382.

 

Nordson Corp Foundation

Nordson’s corporate donations support programs around the world that fall outside the bounds of the Nordson Corporation Foundation. Donations directly from Nordson fund our BUILDS scholarships, international giving, Time ‘n Talent events and matching gifts programs. They also support meaningful for-profit organizations in our communities and can include sponsorships that promote awareness of Nordson. For example, Nordson Tech Time is a program that challenges middle school students at participating schools to submit essays on STEM-related topics for a chance to win prizes. Since the program uses our company name, funding for Nordson Tech Time comes directly from our corporation. During the last financial year, Nordson gave $2.7 million in corporate donations.
