Funding for the Impact Grants is made possible by the Foundation's Annual Charity Golf Classic, which also funds a number of other donations made by the Foundation.
"We feel humbled and blessed by each charitable organization we're able to help through our Impact Grants," said Safelite AutoGlass President and CEO Tom Feeney. "Giving back to our community is simply the right thing to do. We thank our partners and employees who have made it possible, and we look forward to the good work of our Impact Grant recipients."
About The Safelite AutoGlass Foundation
Safelite AutoGlass – the nation's leading provider of vehicle glass repair and replacement services – is committed to be a responsible member of the communities where we live and work. This includes those outside our doorstep and those across the world. As such the company supports employees' charitable endeavors while also being a large fundraiser.
The Safelite AutoGlass Foundation was created in 2005 as the 501(c)(3) giving arm of the company aimed at supporting organizations that promote the health and well-being of families through monetary and in-kind contributions and volunteer hours.
The Safelite AutoGlass Foundation is set up as a separate entity, governed by company employees from the corporate offices and the field organization. The Foundation administers giving on behalf of Safelite and its employees, disbursing aid to approved causes or charities, and organizing many giving initiatives in communities where our associates live and work.
