The Foundation is the philanthropic arm of the Company, a global technology leader in the design, manufacturer, and customer support of premium light-, medium- and heavy-duty trucks under the Kenworth, Peterbilt, and DAF names. The Company also provides customized financial services, information technology, and truck parts related to its principal business. The Foundation directs much of its grantmaking to organizations in those communities within the service area of a significant Company presence, such as a factory or major office. Grantmaking is focused on universities, hospitals, United Way, and arts and economic education. The Foundation funds capital campaigns, the acquisition or improvement of facilities used for social and health services, education, and cultural affairs. Proposals for program funds, support of operation budgets, and fund-raising events are seldom funded. Additional information can be found on the Web site.
