building stronger communities by listening, caring, giving …

We reach out as a company, employee teams and individuals – listening, caring and giving to build stronger communities around the world. Through our Responsible Care Program, we proactively engage with our communities through transparency and two-way communications. With a primary focus on education, the environment and health and human services initiatives, we provide support both financially and through hands-on involvement. We are “Community Builders” and we’re committed to making the world a better place to live.


Approximately one-third of our annual corporate contributions target education-related activities, with a primary focus on science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) initiatives.


We are committed to the communities in which we live, the countries in which we operate, our world and the people, animals and natural resources that are a part of it. Here are just a few examples of our employees demonstrating community commitment.


We take our role as environmental stewards seriously. We partner with local, state and national organizations to improve quality of life.

health and human services

Through employee volunteerism and contribution support, we assist various worldwide agencies in accomplishing their missions. In the United States, our annual Employee Giving Campaign enables us to support a wide range of health and human services organizations. For every dollar employees contribute, Ashland provides a 50 percent match.


Our proactive, outcome-driven, corporate contributions program lets us partner with select organizations to achieve our larger commitments to education, the environment and health and human services. Organizations interested in applying for grant funding should access our online grant application. Please note, requests are accepted annually during the months of June and July for funding the following fiscal year.
