supporting the community

The Johnson Controls Foundation provides financial gifts to select U.S.-based organizations located in the communities in which the company has a presence. 

Each year, the Foundation distributes grants of more than $7 million to support the arts, education, health and social services, and the environment.

Our Giving Criteria

Arts and Culture
The Foundation supports organizations in the areas of visual, performing and literary arts, public radio and television, libraries, museums, and related cultural activities.

The Foundation supports education through grants to public and private higher education institutions.

To promote higher education for children of its employees, the Johnson Controls Foundation has a program that awards scholarships to those youth who demonstrate a balance of academic achievement, leadership and civic involvement.

Health and Social Services
Operating support for organizations in the health and social services category largely occurs in communities where Johnson Controls has a local presence and is directed through contributions to United Way.


Education and Arts Matching Gift Program

The Education and Arts Matching Gift Program provides Johnson Controls employees and retirees the opportunity to have their financial gifts to arts and higher learning institutions matched from the Foundation.
