Infor Partners with Habitat for Humanity to help Build Affordable Housing

Initiates Employee Volunteer Build Program and Employee Donation Match

ATLANTA -  Feb 22, 2012

Infor, a global provider of business application software serving more than 70,000 customers, today announced a partnership with Habitat for Humanity International to help build homes in partnership with families throughout the United States and abroad. Infor will provide its employees the opportunity to join in the fight against poverty housing through local volunteer work and financial contributions.

"Corporate citizenship is a top priority for Infor, and through our partnership with Habitat for Humanity we are giving back to select communities around the world by lining up Infor resources - people, time and funding - to make a difference," said Charles Phillips, CEO of Infor.  "We are both proud and excited to be working with and supporting our customer, Habitat for Humanity, in its noble cause to provide decent housing solutions and build communities that spread goodwill, dignity and hope."

Through the partnership with Habitat for Humanity International, employees of Infor will have three ways to participate:

  • Volunteer Build Program - employees can work locally onsite to help build affordable housing with Habitat families;
  • Employee Giving Campaign - Infor will match up to $50,000 of employee donations made to Habitat; 
  • Annual Global Village Build - employees can take part in a nine-day building project to provide housing in partnership with a family in La Gallina, Nicaragua.

In total, Infor has committed up to $500,000 to fund house builds and offset operational costs for Habitat for Humanity.
 
"Our corporate partners provide the invaluable support that makes it possible for us to provide housing in partnership with families in need," said Kymberly Wolff, senior vice president of development for Habitat for Humanity International. "We are pleased to partner with Infor, and look forward to working together as they join us in building simple, decent and affordable housing."
