IKEA Accepting Emergency Response Community Support Requests
IKEA has announced a new program to provide IKEA product donations to organizations providing direct support to clients in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Here is the statement released by IKEA:
Being a good neighbor and demonstrating commitment to community is an essential part of who we are and the values that drive us as an organization. This sentiment has been especially true recently, as we see the unprecedented challenges our community is facing during the COVID-19 pandemic.
We are committed to providing support in our local communities to those who have been impacted and we will focus our relief efforts on organizations that support the following areas:
Emergency support and healthcare services
Nursing homes/senior centers
Centers for persons with disabilities
If your organization does not fit within those focus areas or your request is not directly related to impact from COVID-19, we apologize, but at this time we cannot support your request for donations.
Other eligibility requirements & things to know:
We believe Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Diversity at Ingka Group is realized when people treat each other respectfully regardless of their differences. As a humanistic values-based organization, we expect our community partners to also exhibit and practice non-discriminatory behavior toward their co-workers, customers, and suppliers based on our definition of Diversity.
Requests must support the many people. Individual requests that directly benefit one person will not be eligible for consideration.
Initiatives supporting organizations that are not open to all members of the community will not be eligible for consideration.
All donations will be given in the form of IKEA product. We do not provide cash donations (including gift cards or sponsorships).
