Community engagement

Contributing to the communities where we live and work

We operate in 20 locations across the Americas, and we are committed to being a good community member in the places where we live and work. Through the efforts of our company and employees and leveraging the resources of the Armstrong World Industries Foundation (AWIF), we aim to make a positive difference in our communities.


Ongoing targets


Awarding building improvement grants

The Foundation works with nonprofits where AWI operates, to help create improved environments for the constituents they serve. For example, in Pennsylvania, the Foundation worked with the Boys & Girls Club of Lancaster, to provide in-kind and financial support to renovate two facilities for local children in need of a safe, engaging, inviting place to study, play and socialize. In 2017, the Foundation provided $100,000 in financial support and well over $150,000 in product donations, design and construction expertise, as well as a one-time $25,000 maintenance grant. The Foundation has completed similar projects with the Lancaster Science Factory and the Lancaster Early Education Center.


Community events and volunteer efforts

Our employees actively volunteer in their communities. Through the foundation, we offer a gift-matching program for employees who contribute monies or volunteer time to causes they care about.

We continue to look for ways to streamline our giving and volunteering, and to support employees’ participation in signature organizations and causes the Foundation and AWI support, including:
