Our Social Impact Philosophy
At Lippert, we’re passionate about the care of our communities. Collectively, Lippert team members have spent more than 550,000 hours volunteering at non-profit organizations, supporting charitable fundraising events, and “passing the hat” for our fellow team members in need. At Lippert, people are our priority and community is our core. With more than 14,000 team members spread out over our more than 90 facilities worldwide, our social impact extends far and wide. Through monetary donations, product donations and company-wide fundraising events, Team Lippert gives back more than $2 million every year to support the needs of our communities. Lippert team members drive our social impact with their passionate hearts and minds, and Lippert supports the causes our team members are passionately involved in.
