Our Communities

Improving life through HOUSE+HOME

1.6 billion people live in substandard housing around the world today, and one-in-ten people live in distressed communities, experiencing a perpetual cycle of low-wage jobs, education instability, inadequate transportation and racial inequality. Creating solutions to these problems guides Whirlpool Corporation’s approach to social responsibility.


Our focus on “house” includes our 23-year global relationship with Habitat for Humanity®. Together we have served nearly one million people around the world. 2022 concluded two phases of a three-phase commitment to Habitat’s BuildBetter with Whirlpool initiative to build 250 climate-resilient and energy-efficient homes in the United States, including donating energy-efficient appliances. At the onset of the war in Ukraine, our EMEA employees, with Habitat for Humanity, worked tirelessly to provide shelter and monetary assistance to displaced families in Hungary, Poland, Moldova and Slovakia.


Our responsibility to “home” advances communities through education and neighborhood revitalization. We use a collective impact with United Way®, Consul brand’s Consulado da Mulher®, Boys & Girls Clubs of America®, Whirlpool brand’s Care Counts and our Feel Good Fridge programs sponsored by our U.S. Sales team and Maytag brand.
