Responsibility is a core value at STERIS and serves as the foundation for our Environmental Stewardship Initiative. As a global company, we are committed to making a difference in the local communities where we operate. Each year, we focus on a number of programs that enhance the quality of life through financial and civic support, continuing education and sustainable best practices.
|The STERIS Foundation
STERIS contributes funding in support of health and scientific education, human services and civic and cultural activities. Since its establishment in September 1995, the STERIS Foundation has contributed nearly $3 million to charitable organizations.
Our global workforce generously volunteers its time and expertise to help underprivileged and underserved communities. Our employees' spirit of volunteerism is evident in a wide range of activities - from serving on boards of local non-profits and providing marketing support to charitable organizations, to volunteering on weekends for community service projects and helping with food drives.
STERIS and its employees are proud to support the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF), a leading organization that works to unify global efforts to cure, treat, and prevent Type 1 diabetes. We raise money for JDRF through various activities such as bake sales, gift basket raffles and employee sponsorship and participation in the annual JDRF Walk For The Cure Event.
|Make a Wish® Foundation
Since 2007, STERIS has sponsored the heartfelt wishes of more than 17 children in Northeast Ohio. During the annual campaign, STERIS hosts a number of events on our campus to educate and engage employees on the mission of this wonderful organization. We round out the campaign with the Walk for Wishes, in which STERIS employees, families and friends join supporters from across the region to raise money and enjoy a fun-filled day at the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo.
STERIS shares the United Way belief that everyone in the community should work together to create a brighter future. STERIS and its employees are major contributors of service and funding to various United Way programs.
