Harnessing and Deploying Our Resources to Tackle Large-Scale Societal Needs

Doing well by doing good has been a long standing tradition at Pentair, and is reflected in our company’s Win Right Values. Since 1998, the Pentair Foundation has donated more than $59 million to philanthropic causes strengthening the communities in which we operate and providing safe, clean water to nearly three million people.

The Pentair Foundation hosts two grant cycles annually and concentrates grant-making in the areas of food, water and education. If your organization fits within one of the focus areas, we encourage you to apply. The fall grant cycle will be open through September 15. All applicants will be notified of the status of their proposal by November 15. Click here to apply.

As the world’s growing population puts increasing demands on global agriculture resources, Pentair focuses on funding innovative solutions in aquaculture and aquaponics as well as agriculture development, education, and research related to water reuse and management in the production of food.

We believe safe water is a fundamental human right, and one of the foundations of freedom and economic development. Pentair collaborates with a range of partners, combining our technology, micro-enterprise business models, and scientific research to provide sustainable access to safe water, as well as water conservation and reuse efforts.

Education is key to economic development and improved living standards. In developing countries, our efforts focus on increasing opportunities for children to access and attend school; and in developed countries, we focus on Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) curriculum.

As “Team Pentair,” our employees give time and talent to important issues, providing leadership to help improve the communities where we live and work. Pentair works to support these employee-led efforts through matching grants for volunteerism and financial giving. Click here to learn more about Team Pentair.
