Arts and Culture

We support arts and culture organizations to enhance the quality of life in our communities. Through arts, creativity and talent is nurtured. People learn to tap into the power of their imagination, which is where good ideas come from in life and in business.

The arts also help further understanding among diverse cultures. And from understanding comes the ability to work together for the benefit of all. Many of our operating grants are directed toward arts education for children and youth because there is a strong correlation between involvement in the arts and intellectual development.

An annual grant from the Ecolab Foundation since 2013 supports the Outreach Arts in Education visual art programming at the Lafontaine Arts Council in Huntington County, Indiana.  Pictured here is a mural created through the program with the local Boys and Girls Club.
