Solving smarter isn’t just about business. It’s about making life better, and that includes improving the communities where we live and work. Corporate social responsibility has been fundamental to Rexnord for more than a century, and our Rexnord Foundation formalized this commitment more than 60 years ago.

We provide direct financial support to the Rexnord Foundation and also offer an Associate Matching Gift program, which helps provide support to a wide variety of organizations while giving associates a strong voice in how Rexnord Foundation funds are distributed in their communities.

Rexnord Foundation grants and associate volunteerism focus on these areas:

  • Basic Needs – supporting organizations that provide basic support services in the areas of food, housing and care for those in need.
  • Education – supporting experiences, events and organizations that give educational opportunities, expand horizons and promote culture diversity while encouraging the pursuit of excellence.
  • Environment – supporting local and global organizations that promote a viable world for current and future generations, provide environmental education, protect natural resources, and foster conservation and innovation.

Along with community support, the Rexnord Foundation awards college scholarships to the sons and daughters of U.S. associates.

The Rexnord Foundation’s Board of Directors meets in January and July to evaluate grant opportunities. For more information about the Rexnord Foundation or to apply for a grant, email
