ITW Wins United Way’s Prestigious Summit Award For Philanthropic Engagement

In May of 2012, United Way Worldwide recognized ITW with a Summit Award for the category of philanthropic engagement. ITW and its employees raised $11.4 million for United Way, including a generous and best-in-class, dollar-for-dollar match plus an enhancement to encourage participation and leadership giving.

United Way is one the largest and most respected charities in the United States; it operates through nearly 1800 local United Way agencies to help individuals and families achieve full potential through education, income stability and healthy living. The Spirit of America and Summit Awards program, celebrating its 25th year, is the organization’s highest honor for corporate donors.
