Holmes Murphy Foundation

CEO Message

Dan KeoughHolmes Murphy has always believed in giving back to the communities where we live, work, and play. We encourage each one of our employees to Leave Good Footprints and Share Abundantly with their time, talents, and treasures, and we are committed to helping support organizations that help create a brighter future for our families, friends, co-workers, clients, and partners. This has been a staple of the Holmes Murphy way since we began in 1932, and why, in 2019, we took a bold and substantial step forward by officially creating the Holmes Murphy Foundation. And, wow, what an inaugural year it was.

I encourage you to take a look at our 2019 Holmes Murphy Foundation Community Impact Report, if you have a moment.

We’re excited about the impact we’re making, and even more proud of the work our employees are doing within our communities.

The support and response we have received from our communities has been simply amazing. Thank you.

What Are the Foundation’s Areas of Giving?

Safety, Health and Wellbeing

We believe everyone deserves to feel safe, be healthy, and thrive, and yet, so many don’t have access to the resources or interventions needed. We support at-risk, health, and wellbeing human services initiatives that address these growing needs.

Youth Opportunities

We believe proper youth development opportunities are at the forefront of our next generation living their best and most productive life. We support initiatives tied to youth development and enrichment in our communities. Our youth will drive our future.

Arts & Culture

We believe arts and culture are paramount in creating healthy and vibrant communities in which we live, work, and play. We support arts and culture initiatives that allow access to learning opportunities for our employees and their families.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

 We focus on embracing differences with intentionality and with a goal to make a difference at work, home, and in our communities. We support services designed with authenticity and that will help us sustain a culture where every person is supported to reach their fullest potential.

Direct Giving
We believe in supporting causes most closely aligned with our own mission-driven aspirations and those tied to our customers, business partners and local non-profil or charitable organizations.

Volunteer Time Off (VTO)
An impression is left with every encounter, and Holmes Murphy is committed to Leaving Good Footprints in our local communities. Therefore, our employees are encouraged to take up to 2 days of Volunteer Time Off (VTO) annually for qualified non-profit agencies.
Employees can request VTO through their respective leaders.
Employee Matching Gift Program
We believe a part of our obligation as an Employer of Choice is to not only encourage community engagement, volunteerism, and advocacy, but to help strengthen our employees’ efforts in the tune of a matching gift.
