The Parker Hannifin Foundation

Incorporated on January 29, 1953, the focus of the Parker Hannifin Foundation is to support educational institutions, health care organizations, and various local charities. Millions of dollars are donated by the Foundation each year to organizations that are making a difference in the lives of Parker employees and the communities we call home.

Every Parker location is focused on local community support and fundraising activities. In addition to donations, many employees also volunteer their time; dedicating countless hours in support of organizations that appeal to a personal connection. Company sponsored fundraising drives include everything from holiday gifts, coats and backpack collections; to funds for education, the arts, medical research, community support organizations, and much more.

The Parker Hannifin Foundation extends the goodwill of Parker’s employees with donations that benefit the communities we call home. Organizations that have been supported include: American Heart Association, Great Lakes Science Center, Newspapers in Education, Habitat for Humanity, Cleveland Sustainability Network, LEAF, Junior Achievement, Exeter Math Institute, Holden Arboretum, and Cleveland Museum of Art.

The Parker Hannifin Foundation has a matching gift program for employees and retirees of the company but the program is limited to qualified educational institutions and qualifying disaster events supported by the Red Cross that occur in the communities in which we operate.
