Our Philanthropy

We believe in giving back to the communities we do business in and helping those in need.

The official charitable division of Ace Hardware Corporation, the Ace Hardware Foundation is a 501(c)3 organization that exists to help enhance the vision of being the "Helpful Place" in local communities through philanthropy. The Foundation provides support and opportunities to its consumers, retail store owners, vendor partners and team members to give back locally primarily through efforts for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals® and American Red Cross Disaster Relief. In addition, the Foundation oversees the Ace Helpful Fund, an employee emergency assistance fund available to qualified retail, corporate, field and RSC Ace team members who are facing financial hardship.
