To support the organizations and nonprofits providing critical resources during the coronavirus pandemic, the Burns & McDonnell Foundation is donating $1.5 million to the United Way COVID-19 Community Response and Recovery Fund.
This fund supports communities across the U.S. and $40,000 will go directly toward response and recovery efforts in Dallas-Fort Worth and $215,000 in Texas, the foundation said in a news release.
“United Way fights for the health, education and financial stability of every person in every community by providing the resources and information unique to individuals’ needs,” Ray Kowalik, chairman and CEO of Burns & McDonnell, said in a news release. “Our employee-owners’ desire to give back and empower others is the heartbeat of our firm and our Foundation. During this pandemic, we are committed to protecting and supporting the most vulnerable in our communities.”
United Way has a presence in 95% of U.S. communities and is mobilizing to providing food, shelter and other vital resources throughout its network. During the past decade, Burns & McDonnell employee-owners have given more than $10 million to the organization through annual United Way campaigns.
In addition to providing relief funding nationwide, the Burns & McDonnell Foundation also is matching donations from individual employee-owners, further supporting employee-owners’ ability to make an impact within the organizations and causes they are most passionate about, the company said.
