Since its creation in 2000, Dow Promise has evolved from a promise into a lasting relationship that supports Dow’s commitments to the principles of sustainable development, and more importantly social responsibility.
The Dow Promise Program is an employee-led initiative to positively impact educational and economic challenges faced by youth and adults of African heritage in communities near Dow sites. A part of the Dow Promise program is an annual competitive grant program designed to support social, economic, or environmental projects that contribute to long-term success in the communities in which Dow operates and in which Dow employees reside.
Applicants must be charitable or non-profit organizations (have a 501(c)(3) non-profit tax designation) or be municipal or government agencies. Faith-based organizations that have a 501(c) (3) can also apply, provided their projects benefit the community as a whole and not just their organization membership. A committee of Dow employees will select the projects.

Collaborates with Keep America Beautiful to Award Two $50,000 Grants
MIDLAND, Mich. - July 11, 2017 - The Dow Chemical Company (NYSE: DOW) announced today it has teamed up with national nonprofit, Keep America Beautiful, to award two $50,000 grants for organizations to establish Hefty® EnergyBag™ programs in their communities. The program is an innovative approach to diverting traditionally non-recycled plastics – like chip bags and juice pouches – from landfills and converting the materials into valuable energy sources.

The grant application is open to municipalities, non-profits, materials recovery facilities, and other qualifying organizations through September 1, 2017. Dow will provide grant recipients with the blueprint to develop a successful Hefty® EnergyBag™ program and will facilitate planning and implementation. Recipients will ultimately manage the programs and solicit involvement of key community stakeholders.
“The Hefty® EnergyBag™ program demonstrates Dow’s commitment to advancing a circular economy, a pillar of our 2025 Sustainability Goals,” said Neil Hawkins, chief sustainability officer for Dow. “In partnership with Keep America Beautiful, these grants will enable the growth of this important initiative and show the power of a collaborative blueprint for reducing landfill waste and waste released to the environment, two critical global priorities.”
“At Keep America Beautiful, we look for innovative ways to promote and improve recycling and other approaches to divert waste from landfills,” said Brenda Pulley, senior vice president of recycling for Keep America Beautiful. “The Hefty® EnergyBag™ program provides a convenient way to collect plastic materials that would otherwise end up in the landfill and offers a platform to promote positive behaviors to prevent this material from being wasted.”

The grant program builds on Dow’s long-standing relationship with Keep America Beautiful and will be funded through the Company’s Global Citizenship Impact Fund, a unique way to unlock business value while driving social impact. The fund provides financial resources for business-aligned global citizenship initiatives focused on three key impact areas: access to clean drinking water, packaging to prevent food waste, and post-consumer waste management.
“The Hefty® EnergyBag™ program is a true proof point for our efforts to redefine the role of business in society,” said Diego Donoso, business president for Dow Packaging and Specialty Plastics. “By sharing knowledge and resources with communities, we are enabling grant recipients to develop sustainable Hefty® EnergyBag™ programs in their backyards – a crucial step as we look to scale the initiative across the country.”
The first full-scale Hefty® EnergyBag™ program was launched in Omaha in September 2016 and has since expanded from 6,000 to 8,500 households. As of June 2017, the Omaha program has collected more than 13,000 bags of previously non-recycled plastics, diverting more than six tons of waste previously destined for landfills.
The Omaha program is based on the success of a 2014 Energy Bag Pilot in Citrus Heights, Calif. and is a collaborative effort between Dow, Reynolds Consumer Products, Recyclebank, First Star Recycling, Conagra Brands and Systech Environmental Corporation.
