    Kimball International-Habig Foundation


    The Kimball International-Habig Foundation, which represents Kimball International, Inc., was established in 1951 in Indiana and is funded by a percentage of profit earnings of the company. In keeping with our corporate philosophy and Guiding Principles, Kimball International is committed to helping the communities in which we operate to become even better places to live.

    Supporting that goal, The Kimball International-Habig Foundation focuses its funding and resources on grants to organizations and programs that most directly benefit those U.S. communities in which Kimball has operations or facilities, or from which it draws employees.

    In most of these small, rural communities, Kimball is the major (or in some cases, the only) source of significant charitable contributions to support health and human services, education, religious institutions, arts and culture, and civic and community programs that benefit the elderly, the disabled, children, schools, community centers and critical services such as local volunteer fire departments. The Kimball International-Habig Foundation focuses on five categories:
    • Education (pre-school, elementary, high school and university levels)
    • Health & Human Services
    • Civic & Community Programs
    • Arts & Culture
    • Religious Institutions (non-denominational, all inclusive)

    History of Funding

    In total, Kimball International charitable giving has passed the $12 million mark in donations, grants and scholarships.

    Additional Information

    To improve education for children, from preschool through high school, and for adults via continuing education and development, Kimball supports:
    • Programs that foster critical thinking skills
    • Programs that foster reading and comprehension
    • Programs that foster technology and business interests
    Health & Human Services
    The Foundation's main focus is to improve the human condition and help to alleviate suffering by assisting local community organizations, charities, faith-based initiatives, and social services, in their efforts by considering the following types of requests:
    • Care and protection of Children and Infants
    • Care and protection of at-risk Women and Families
    • Care and protection of the Elderly and Infirmed
    • Provision of Healthcare, Medical and Counseling services
    • Provision of basic Social and Support services
    Civic & Community Programs
    To help our local communities become better places to live, work and raise a family, the Foundation supports:
    • Projects of local need or infrastructure improvement (fire departments, libraries)
    • Projects promoting or supporting local civic pride (revitalization, historic preservation)
    • Community celebrations and tourism events
    • Environmental protection and preservation
    Arts & Culture
    The Foundation recognizes the importance of the visual, written and performing arts to enhance the human spirit, and supports opportunities to provide exposure to the arts among our youth, school systems and communities at large. Requests are considered that:
    • Promote or provide for artistic exposure in our community school systems
    • Promote or provide for performances or exhibits in our local communities
    Religious Institutions
    Faith-based projects and programs aimed at alleviating human suffering, improving the human condition, promoting self-worth, and instilling values, regardless of denominational affiliation.

    Kimball Scholarship Program
    The foundation awards college scholarships to high school seniors who are children or dependents of full-time employees. Recipients are chosen based on academic achievement and financial need.

    The Foundation no longer considers requests for new buildings, expansion or renovation projects or to affiliated capital campaigns. Instead, it only supports true service ministry activities.
