Community and Charitable GivingIntermec Social Responsibility – Brochure (PDF) »
Established in 1993, the Intermec Foundation is a private charitable foundation that supports employees of Intermec and their communities in the United States.
The primary focus of the Foundation's giving is directed to 501(c)(3) accredited educational institutions and programs that align with the passion of Intermec employees to support and improve their schools and communities. Over the past years, the Foundation annually donates an average of $750,000 to local schools and community organizations such as the United Way and food banks located in the cities where we do business. Our current annual programs in the United States include programs such as K-12 Educational Support, National Merit Scholarship Competitions, Matching Gifts, United Way, Community Food Banks, and more.
While the Intermec Foundation is focused on causes in the United State, Intermec offices are active in many countries around the world and encouraged to support local and national charitable causes. In the United Kingdom Intermec raised in excess of £30,000 for Action for Children – a charity supporting vulnerable and neglected children and young people and in 2012 has extended its efforts to assist Macmillan Cancer Support and their mission of improving the lives of people affected by cancer.
