Dow Corning Carrollton Site – Commitment to Community


Support for community and educational initiatives

Sustainability and support for the communities in which we operate are important parts of Dow Corning’s philanthropic efforts. Dow Corning’s Carrollton Site contributes thousands of dollars each year to a variety of community activities.

Over three years, the Dow Corning Foundation donated $90,000 to Carroll County Schools to provide Engineering is Elementary (developed by the Boston Museum of Science), Project Lead The Way in middle and high schools, and partnering with J.B. Speed School of Engineering to train teachers.

In 2012, Dow Corning Corporation and Carrollton site employees donated nearly $60,000 to Ohio Valley United Charities. The funds are used to support programs that provide support for abuse and rape victims, learning opportunities for children and adults, medical and dental services, and much more.

The Carrollton Site’s strong partnership with the local school systems was awarded the prestigious, “Friend of Education” award by the Kentucky State School Boards Association, the only company in Kentucky so recognized for 2010.

Where we focus our giving

Other ways we demonstrate our support

  • The Carrollton Site sponsors a 218-acre 4-Mile Outdoor Classroom where local students from Carrollton County can experience hands-on education.
  • In 2010, the Carroll County Memorial Hospital was given $30,000 to purchase four new hospital beds as part of a community-funded renovation of the hospital.
  • In honor of the Dow Corning Foundation's 30th anniversary in 2011, $30,000 was donated to FIRST® Robotics Great Lakes Bay Region of Mich., Carrollton, Ky. and Greensboro, N.C. The funds helped local robotics teams purchase materials for team projects and competitions.
  • In 2011, $20,000 was donated to the Carroll Co./Kentucky Tech Area Technology Center, and Jefferson Community College on the Carroll Co. Training Consortium to develop industrial training programs. Local high school and college students who have an interest in chemical plant processes utilize this training lab, which also helps students prepare for work at various manufacturing companies in the area.
