"Through financial contributions and employee volunteerism, we make a conscientious effort to positively impact the communities in which our employees live and work."
In addition to the grant contributions, the foundation made financial donations in honor of 52 Modine employees, each of whom volunteered over 25 hours with a charitable organization of their choice in 2015. Together, these employees volunteered over 2,500 hours throughout the United States.

Through direct grants, the foundation creatively and thoughtfully acts as a champion for the communities in which Modine operates. In honor of Modine's 100th anniversary, the foundation has chosen to focus its grant activity on the broad theme of Education for the remainder of 2016.
