The Hudson Bay Way Foundation, by providing support for organizations promoting education, health, and wellness for children and members of the communities in which we live and serve, strives to encourage increased philanthropic awareness among Hudson Bay employees and the community, thereby, making a positive impact on our future generations.
Charitable giving helps encourage a sense of community and creates a meaningful social impact. Stewardship of the communities in which we live and serve has been an integral part of the cultural fabric of Hudson Bay Insulation Company. To further the philanthropic ideals of the Company, a private charitable foundation has been established. Through The Hudson Bay Way Foundation, the Company supports organizations that promote education, health, and wellness opportunities for children and members of our community.
As an employee of Hudson Bay Insulation Company, you have the opportunity to participate in the Company’s charitable giving in multiple ways. Employee Directed Giving which is available through authorized payroll deductions is one way. Employees can provide funding to various organizations through The Hudson Bay Way Foundation. The Foundation is also offering a Mini-Grant Program to support charitable organizations in which children of HBI employees are involved.

Employee Mini Grant Program
The Hudson Bay Way Foundation has created a Mini Grant Program specifically for organizations that the children of Hudson Bay Insulation Company employees participate in. Promoting educational and wellness opportunities for children is a primary function of The Hudson Bay Way Foundation (THBWF), therefore, by supporting the school, sports teams and extracurricular activities of our employees’ children we hope to encourage participation.
For 2017, the Foundation will offer a total of 10 Mini Grants, each in the amount of $0 to $250. Applications will be accepted in March and September to encompass activities throughout the year. Information will be distributed to employees through the Company newsletter, on the website, and through flyers to insure that all employees receive the opportunity to participate. Applications will be accepted on a first come, first served basis. Awards will be made at the discretion of the Board.
The Hudson Bay Way Foundation is registered as a 501(c)(3) organization, tax identification number 47-4847975.
