Donor Profile

Fortune Brands Home & Security (FBHS), the company behind Moen® faucets, MasterBrand® cabinets, Therma-Tru® entry doors, Simonton® windows and Master Lock® security products, may be a global company, but their roots are located right here in the Great Lakes region. With headquarters in Deerfield, Illinois, and brand offices in Ohio, Indiana, Wisconsin, and Illinois, many of the company’s associates, customers and their families live and work in Great Lakes states.

With this in mind, FBHS is partnering with The Nature Conservancy to advance local and global freshwater conservation, and spread the word about the importance of nature to their employees. Recently, FBHS made a generous gift to the Conservancy’s Great Lakes and Global Freshwater programs, advancing the protection of important nature resources that provide drinking water to their employees and people around the world. FBHS challenged its employees to get involved through an employee giving campaign, with the company matching employee contributions $1 for $1. Employees received incentives like extra vacation days and casual dress days for their participation, and raised more than $16,000 to support the work of the Conservancy.

The Conservancy and FBHS are also partnering to host employee workday events at preserves located near staff members’ homes. FBHS employees will meet throughout the year at locations like the Chiwaukee Prairie in Wisconsin, where they recently contributed to conservation efforts by weeding invasive species, performing essential maintenance, and collecting native seed.

“Workday events provide a great opportunity to engage our associates around a meaningful initiative that benefits their own communities,” said Elizabeth Castro, corporate communications director at FBHS.

The Conservancy is also providing FBHS employees with ongoing opportunities to learn about important freshwater conservation work.
