How Elkay’s 2021 Giving Campaign Drove $5 Million in Impact

Zurn Elkay Water Solutions has a long-standing tradition of giving back to its communities through both philanthropy and volunteerism.


At Elkay, this has been driven for years by the ELKAYcares program, a powerful way for associates to make sure their donation dollars made an impact. 

Through the annual program, Elkay invited associates to donate what they could to a wide range of highly-rated, high performing charities that aligned with the company’s values and culture. The gifts were then magnified through a dollar-for-dollar match.

In 2021, the donation plus match resulted in over $161,000 in gifts to charities including:

  • Creating Healthier Communities, which represents over 60 health-related non-profits

  • Splash

  • Elkay Family Foundation

  • Habitat for Humanity

  • Living Lands & Waters

  • Thurgood Marshall College Fund

  • Operation Homefront

  • United Way

  • Equal Justice Initiative

Adding together the total amount raised by the campaign over the prior 10 years, through 2021 ELKAYcares was able to give more than $5 million to support the communities where associates work, live and play.
