Since 1986, the Armstrong World Industries Foundation has donated more than $30 million to charity.

Established in the State of Pennsylvania, its purpose and mission is:

"Organized exclusively for charitable, educational and scientific purposes, including for such purposes, the making of distributions to organizations that qualify as exempt organizations under Section 501 (c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and as other than private foundations as defined in Section 509 (a) of the Internal Revenue Code."

The primary objectives of the Armstrong World Industries Foundation Contributions Program are as follows:

  1. Improve the quality of life in communities in which Armstrong World Industries employees live and work.
  2. Support higher education as it relates to employees (meaning scholarships and higher education gift matching).
  3. Provide emergency support to members of the Armstrong World Industries community in crises.
  4. Other appropriate initiatives as determined by the Foundation Board of Directors from time to time.

In its grantmaking decisions as well as in its interests and activities, the Armstrong World Industries Foundation acts independent of the Armstrong World Industries company.
