In 2015, Johnson Controls gave $14.5 million in the areas represented here. The Johnson Controls Foundation gave more than $8.6 million to U.S.-based nonprofits that improve our communities. We also continued our five-year, $2.5 million commitment to the Annual Disaster Giving Program of the American Red Cross, offering the highest level of corporate support.

Just as they go above and beyond for our customers, our employees generously contribute their time, talent and resources to change lives around the globe. Supported by a culture of commitment, they live the Johnson Controls values, making communities better because we are there. 

Employees volunteered more than 316,000 hours in 2015.

Their efforts affected more than 37 million people.

A playground for children with special needs came together in two days with help from 24 Johnson Controls employees. The playground will serve more than 5,000 kids from 12 communities in Michigan’s Downriver/Metro Detroit area. 

One hundred timber tree saplings were planted by 20 Johnson Controls volunteers at Siku Mount in the Cameron Highlands of Pahang, Malaysia. Employees worked with 15 rangers from the Pahang Forestry Department to complete the project.

The Community Involvement Program encourages volunteering in the arts, education, social services and environmental stewardship.
