More than a half-century of taking care and giving care.
Established in 1952, the Kimberly-Clark Foundation carries out
our mission of charitable giving, which is based on our promise to
be a good employer, a good neighbor, and to support causes that
provide essentials for a better life.
The Kimberly-Clark Foundation, together with funding from the
corporation and our employees, responds to causes and programs with
financial contributions, Kimberly-Clark product donations and
volunteer time. The answer could be diapers for thousands of North
American moms and babies in need. It could be medical supplies in
under-developed areas of Latin America, or it may be malaria
education and treatment programs for communities across Kenya.
In 2015, Kimberly-Clark and our employees contributed
$35.8 million in cash and product donations for charitable causes
worldwide. As part of that amount, the Kimberly-Clark Foundation
matched $1.7 million in employee giving and awarded about $700,000
in grants to charities where our employees or their spouses
volunteered more than 80,000 hours of their time.
Kimberly-Clark has established the following guidelines for all
of our charitable endeavors in our local communities, nationally
To thousands of Kimberly-Clark employees, giving of themselves
isn't a corporate strategy, it's an extension of our spirit of
caring. Each year, thousands of Kimberly-Clark employees worldwide
devote their time, talent and financial resources to support
community events, local and international causes and disaster
The communities where Kimberly-Clark operates are made better
through the special talents and generosity of our people. By
matching corporate resources to our employees' hands-on efforts, we
recognize the commitment and leadership that our people bring to
