community
engagement

“Our family’s philanthropic vision is to support the communities where our employees and customers live and work. We assist where there is need. It’s the right thing to do for our company, for our employees, and for our communities. I believe it as firmly today as my grandfather did in 1924.”

– Mindy K. Holman, Chairman of the Board, Director

It’s about
doing the
right thing.

The Holman organization believes in the support and advancement of our communities, making annual gifts of close to $2M to over 250 non-profits in every region where they do business. Holman employees respond generously to the annual United Way campaign, with over $1M pledged in each of the past five years.

Holman charitable partnerships

Community Grants provide Holman with opportunities to build meaningful partnerships in our communities. Designed for gifts of $10,000 or more, or multi-year gifts of $15,000 or more, these grants are awarded twice a year and involve a thorough application process.

Holman charitable sponsorships

Community Group Sponsorships provide gifts of up to $10,000. These gifts are awarded more frequently than grants to be more responsive to specific programs or events. Applications are reviewed monthly.

Holman employee donations

Employee Donations of up to $1,000 are given at the request of employees to support organizations and events that hold special meaning for them. Holman fully supports its employees, and encourages and honors their charitable instincts. Applications are reviewed monthly.

Holman volunteers

Holman employees donate thousands of hours of volunteer labor annually to surrounding community organizations. Foremost among these efforts is the United Way Days of Caring, a massive company effort, in which 300 employees contribute 2000 hours, over 2 days.

Holman cares

Habitat for Humanity work days, feeding the homeless and hungry at Feeding 5000 Saturdays, and Feed My Starving Children meal-packing events—plus fundraising walks, runs, bike rides, motorcycle rides, and polar plunges. Collection drives for: Autism Speaks, American Cancer Society, Alzheimer’s Foundation, American Heart Association, and MS Society

Holman helps

Holman employees are the most important part of the local communities. That’s why H.E.L.P. (the Holman Emergency Lifeline Program) was developed. This emergency fund assists employees who are caught in a sudden financial crisis due to unforeseen circumstances such as serious illness or accidents, or natural or civic disasters. Gifts from the H.E.L.P. fund are awarded by a nine-member panel of non-management employees.
