Ecolab Foundation awards grant to Honeywell

Posted: Friday, January 4, 2019

The Honeywell Foundation has been awarded a $5,000 grant by the Ecolab Foundation. The grant award will benefit the Honeywell Foundation’s Educational Outreach Program, a curriculum-based, multifaceted arts education program that provides free arts education programming in 14 counties in the northeast region of Indiana.

In addition to distributing grant funds in and around St. Paul, Minnesota, where the Ecolab Foundation is located, funding is also distributed to organizations in the communities where Ecolab operates. With an Ecolab manufacturing facility in Huntington, the Honeywell Foundation qualified for the grant based on its proximity to Huntington County, and for the services provided to students by the Honeywell Foundation’s Educational Outreach Program.

The Ecolab Foundation offers grants that focus on arts and culture, supporting museums, performing arts and arts education for children and youth. Thus, the Honeywell Foundation’s Educational Outreach Program qualified for the grant.

Teresa Galley, the Honeywell Foundation’s director of education and outreach, commented, “The generosity of the Ecolab Foundation’s funding the Educational Outreach Program is greatly appreciated. We are so thankful that they recognize the value of the arts in the development of children’s learning and support the efforts of the Honeywell Foundation to provide impactful opportunities for students in Huntington County.”

The Educational Outreach Program provided approximately 50,000 arts opportunities to students during the 2017 and 2018 school year.

Ecolab is the global leader in water, hygiene and energy technologies and services that protect people and vital resources. Since 1986, the Ecolab Foundation has contributed more than $100 million in support of programs and initiatives that benefit the communities where its employees live and work, giving to nonprofit organizations that focus on youth and education, civic and community development, arts and culture, and environment and conservation.
