Winnebago Industries Foundation will provide $100,000 to global housing nonprofit Habitat for Humanity through a new national partnership.
The manufacturer’s foundation will support local Habitat organizations such as its RV Care-A-Vanner program and neighborhood revitalization work, in addition to work in areas where Winnebago has operations.
“Habitat for Humanity and Winnebago Industries connect families with places to call home, where they can make memories together,” Winnebago Industries Foundation President Stacy Bogart said. “We are thrilled to deepen our partnership. For years, our team members and RV owners have shared their relentless passion for craft, quality and safety with Habitat organizations in Indiana, Iowa and Florida. Building on that local support, we look forward to supporting Habitat’s community-based neighborhood revitalization efforts.”
Winnebago’s foundation previously supported Habitat as a sponsor of its RV Care-A-Vanner program’s 30th anniversary. The initiative allows North American volunteers to travel in their RVs and build homes in partnership with local Habitat organizations.
Additionally, the foundation served as a lead supporter of Habitat’s Disaster Rebuild Team – a group of RV Care-A-Vanner participants who completed disaster training and help local Habitat organization build back communities. The foundation stated its donation will continue to support these initiatives.
“Winnebago Industries Foundation has already made an impact on our organization and the communities we serve through the support of our RV Care-A-Vanners program and local home builds,” said Julie Laird Davis, VP of corporate and cause marketing partnerships at Habitat’s international branch. “We are thrilled they have decided to expand their support, and we look forward to working together as partners to serve more families.”
Founded in 1976, Habitat for Humanity is a Christian-inspired housing nonprofit derived from a Georgia-based grassroots movement.
