We are KUKACARES Foundation

About KUKACARES Foundation

With 8 of our supplier partners, KUKA has established the KUKACARES Foundation. This is a spinoff of our internal KUKACARES program which will promote new opportunities to broaden our community scope and corporate citizenship. The mission remains to directly support the well-being of the families in our community and those families serving in our community. We have registered the foundation as a Non-Profit Organization – 501(c)(3). This includes the formation of Bylaws and a Distribution, Contribution and Governance Committee.

We have an amazing team of employees, contingent workers and suppliers who have always been so generous with supporting our community and each other. The scale of this generosity will now be elevated to a new level. The KUKACARES Foundation allows us to join forces with our partners to grow this community spirit.
