The Pentair Foundation
Established in 1998, The Pentair Foundation supports communities in which Pentair operates. Through local employee-managed councils, the Foundation funds programs that promote education, sustainability in water and energy, and workforce readiness.
Pentair dedicates two percent of its annual pre-tax income to charitable efforts. Over the years, The Pentair Foundation has directed more than $20 million to Pentair communities and has received the Jefferson Award for Corporate Giving.
Education is the key to success: that's why the Pentair Foundation prioritizes education programs ranging from those targeting disadvantaged youth to those aiding in career transition and readiness. The Foundation funds programs serving traditional and non-traditional learners, from early learning to post-secondary and beyond. With a focus on science and technology, the Pentair Foundation supports initiatives including the K-12 STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) program, the FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Robotics program and Project Lead the Way, the partner program to FIRST Robotics, that is designed to spark an interest in STEM subjects and prepare students for the global economy.
The Pentair Foundation helps communities improve the welfare of their citizens with a focus on sustainability and workforce development issues. Believing that those in the community are best suited to identify needs and create solutions, the Pentair Foundation also supports a broad platform of community initiatives.
