The McWane family of companies continues a charitable heritage that began with McWane’s first president, J.R. McWane.
We believe that part of being a good corporate neighbor is to support things that will give value to our community," says G. Ruffner Page, Jr., President of McWane, Inc. "It’s a simple philosophy handed down since J.R. McWane began the company. Being a good citizen means giving back in ways that our communities and our employees can benefit.
Today, McWane, Inc. carries on this vision worldwide by investing in human services, the environment, the arts, education and the communities where we live and work.
Funding for projects that directly benefit individuals in communities where our facilities are located is a corporate-wide initiative. McWane, Inc. and its facilities have provided more than $20 million in support over the past ten years through partnerships with local organizations that make a difference in our communities. Giving is done both at the local level and at the corporate level through the McWane Foundation.
The sponsorship of charitable organizations that benefit our plant communities may then be fulfilled at the local level or forwarded to the corporate level for review by the McWane Foundation. All projects funded by the McWane Foundation must be recommended at the local level by the facilities where the projects are located.
