The Nordson Foundation offers support to nonprofit organizations that cultivate educational curriculum and experiences that foster self-sufficiency, job readiness, and goals to aspire to higher education. The Foundation is well aware of the fact that for non-profit organizations to remain viable they must receive operating support. With this in mind, Nordson Corporation Foundation does invest in general operating support.
The goals of the Nordson Corporation Foundation are to ensure that:
- All children have access to and receive quality educational experiences from early childhood
- All individuals have the opportunity to be self-sufficient members of society
- There is a continuum of quality educational opportunities
- The communities are strengthened by the organizations the Foundation funds; whether their focus is education, human welfare, civic or arts and culture
Through its grant-making, the Foundation supports organizations that directly or indirectly seek to maximize success before, during and beyond the traditional classroom years. Grants will be reviewed and considered on the basis of their enrichment to the communities where Nordson employees live and work. Organizations and programs receiving grants will be expected to identify relevant, measurable outcomes to demonstrate the effectiveness of their programs.
