Whirlpool Foundation

Whirlpool Foundation addresses community issues through partnerships and collaboration to make the biggest impact with the resources at hand. More than half a century ago, Louis and Frederick Upton, two of our founders, established Whirlpool Foundation and made a commitment — a promise — to reinvest in the community. They intended to provide financial and leadership support for nonprofit organizations dedicated to improving the quality of life in the communities where we operated. Whirlpool Foundation keeps that original promise, using new and innovative ways to make lasting impact on society, with an emphasis on the communities in which we live and work.
