PROFILE: Ecolab Foundation was established in 1986 by the Ecolab Corporation, a leading water, hygiene and energy company based in St. Paul, Minnesota and operating around the world. Through its philanthropic enterprises, the foundation aims to “enhance the wellbeing of people and communities” through its four funding initiatives: youth and education, civic and community development, environment and conservation, and arts and culture.
The foundation’s youth and education initiative prioritizes at-risk youth in the communities where its parent company operates. The foundation has collaborated in the national Fuel Up! Innovation Challenge, a contest in which middle- and high-school students create programs aimed at improving nutrition and health in their schools and communities. Ecolab has also provided support for school districts whose teachers pursue professional development through the Visions for Learning curriculum enhancement program.
