“Our core purpose is to make products that purify, protect and enhance the world around us,” said Michael Wilson, president and CEO, Ingevity. “This same spirit extends to our community relations. We aim to be a positive influence on all the communities in which we operate around the globe. This donation to multiple nonprofit organizations through our Trident United Way campaign is one way we’re able to generate positive change.”
More than 200 Ingevity employees pledged a total of $545,323 to charitable organizations. Ingevity matched employee giving dollar-for-dollar. The Trident United Way and its funded charities are primary beneficiaries of donations through the campaign.
“Ingevity exemplifies the best in corporate social responsibility,” said Chris Kerrigan, president and CEO of Trident United Way. “We appreciate that so many Ingevity employees support Trident United Way and other local nonprofits. They know that it’s on all of us to support community transformation so that every Lowcountry resident has opportunities in education, financial stability and health.”
