The Generosity of Our Itron Family Members
The IEEF leverages our culture of generosity and goodwill into a mechanism where members of the Itron family can aid one another in times of need. As a centralized foundation with representatives from all facilities in North America, the IEEF can coordinate local assistance with the power of a continental support system. The IEEF is a true 501(c)3 nonproﬁt charity registered within the U.S., making contributions to the IEEF tax deductible within guidelines of the U.S. Internal Revenue Service. One hundred percent of the employee donations are directed to need-based grant funding. Administrative fees and services are covered through supplemental support.
Contributions are received through automated payroll deductions (one-time and recurring), credit card contributions, cash and checks. To setup payroll deductions, employees utilize the Itron Gives Website through iConnect on itrongives.benevity.org for contribution processing. Utilizing payroll deduction offers the added advantage of qualifying the donation for Itron matching funds. In 2017, Itron donated over $49,000 to the IEEF in matching funds. When combined with our regular donations, this gave the IEEF a total income of over $104,000 in 2017. Please consider supporting your fellow employees with your tax-deductible gift to the IEEF!
