The Swagelok Foundation has announced that it is donating USD $100,000 to help sustain direct-service nonprofit organizations who are facing a sudden increase in economic and medical needs.
The gift will be distributed among six local nonprofit organizations that have designated programs in place to support the area’s most vulnerable citizens during the COVID-19 pandemic. The recipients are Cleveland Foundation: COVID-19 Rapid Response Fund, Greater Cleveland Foodbank, Boys and Girls Clubs of Cleveland, American Red Cross—Northeast Ohio, May Dugan Center, and United Way of Lake County.
“COVID-19 is the largest global crisis we have faced in our generation, and we don’t yet know what the full ripple effects of this pandemic will be. While local and state leadership mandate the necessary policies to keep our communities stable and safe, the members of the Swagelok Foundation believe it is important to support our nonprofit peers, who are providing essential services to those affected by the coronavirus,” said Chris Miklich, Swagelok Company chief financial officer and president of the Swagelok Foundation.
The Swagelok Foundation was established as a charitable organization in 2000 and is dedicated to supporting the communities in which Swagelok associates live and work.
