International Materials Foundation

What We Do

The International Materials Foundation was established in 2020 as an independent philanthropic entity to provide long-term funding and expertise to non-governmental organizations that help improve the socio-economic conditions of vulnerable communities where our employees live and work.

The Foundation’s purpose is to provide financial resources, managerial support and guidance to organizations who are already running successful programs and that could benefit from additional financial and/or managerial resources to fulfill their missions in the following areas:

  • childhood development and wellness
  • healthcare and medical research
  • environmental care and restoration

To support the work of these organizations, the Foundation matches the contributions of International Materials’ employees to qualified organizations for up to $500 per employee per calendar year.

The employee matching program offers International Material’s employees the opportunity to create positive change in their communities in ways that are meaningful to them.


“We are so grateful…

… and encouraged by our relationship with the awesome team at International Materials.  They are not only leaders in their industry, but leaders in their community as well. From hands on preparation of affordable housing units for otherwise homeless youth and families, to the loving and generous provision of financial resources to provide for critical daily needs and support. As we celebrate 20 years at Place of Hope, I am so thankful for our coveted relationships with team International Materials and my friendship with the Warren Family.
