Established in 1991, the Ace Hardware Foundation serves as an umbrella over the charitable fundraising efforts of Ace Hardware retailers, Ace Hardware Corporation and Ace vendor partners for the benefit of Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) and the American Red Cross.
The Ace Hardware Foundation is dedicated to improving people’s lives, be it through needed health care or disaster relief. Since 1991, The Ace Hardware Foundation has helped to advance the health and well being of children by supporting the Children’s Miracle Network. In addition, Ace serves to improve the lives of individuals affected by disasters through the help of the American Red Cross and the American Red Cross General Fund.
Children’s Miracle Network
Established in 1983, Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) generates funds and awareness for more than 17 million sick and injured children who are cared for each year by its 170 affiliated hospitals regardless of their family’s ability to pay. Although the program is national in scope, 100 percent of the funds raised in each community stay local, being donated to the nearest CMN hospital in that area.
The money the Ace Hardware Foundation raises is funneled to CMN hospitals to help sick kids in a variety of ways – from purchasing new equipment and paying hospital bills to funding research that allows CMN doctors to remain on the cutting edge of medical advancements and technology.
