Inkind Giving

By donating products, equipment, services, time and talent, Ecolab assists those in need in numerous ways, around the globe.
InKind and Disaster Relief

Ecolab annually donates needed cleaning, health and sanitizing products to organizations in areas where natural disasters have occurred, benefiting thousands.

In 2015, $2.3 million worth of Ecolab product donations went to world-wide relief efforts, including a total of 355 tons of infection prevention products to help fight the spread of Ebola in West Africa, and much-needed healthcare supplies to hospitals, orphanages and elderly care facilities in Malawi, Romania and El Salvador. 

Ronald McDonald House
Ecolab is very proud to support RMHC® – Ronald McDonald House Charities® for 40 years through donating cleaning solution kits to RMHC® houses around the globe. Ecolab was a corporate sponsor of Ronald McDonald Care Mobile.
Giving Gardens
Ecolab's Giving Gardens in Eagan and St. Paul, Minn. produced more than 1,400 pounds of produce over the past four growing seasons that was donated to local community partner Neighborhood House's food shelf in St. Paul, Minnesota.
Partners in Food Solutions

As part of its philanthropic volunteer programs, Ecolab supports Partners in Food Solutions, sharing resources, experience, methodologies and employee volunteer time to improve the capacity and capabilities of small and growing businesses in developing regions. The goal of the program is to enhance the production of healthy and fortified food products and increasing markets for smallholder farmers. 

Local Communities

Ecolab executives and community relations staff participate in local initiatives representing Ecolab on Community Advisory Panels and local chambers of commerce, speaking as experts, and serving on committees and boards of directors for non-profit organizations lending expertise in the area of strategic planning, finance, marketing and human resources.

Additionally, Ecolab's community partners request use of Ecolab facilities for meeting space for staff meetings, retreats and special events. For example, the American Red Cross uses Ecolab facilities at five different U.S. locations on an annual basis for blood drives as well as CPR trainings.

Public Relations Services
Ecolab also provides public relations services such as design and printing services through the Print Shop in our Naperville, Ill. location. Since 2011, in-kind services valued at $10,000 a year have been provided to the Northern Illinois Food Bank.
