HOPE Foundation

We believe that combining financial funding with the thousands of hours we volunteer accelerates the positive impact we strive to have in the world wherever our Associates live and work.

The Hypertherm Owners’ Philanthropic Endeavors (HOPE) Foundation was founded in 2010 as a public grant-making non-profit 501(c)3 foundation to formalize the US-based financial giving we had been doing for decades across a handful of focus areas. A dozen volunteer Hypertherm Associates, representing a range of areas within our company, comprise the HOPE Team and make all grant allocation decisions on behalf of the Foundation. We have similar shared decision making HOPE teams in all our regional offices, also making community funding decisions on behalf of Hypertherm.

Over the years our HOPE Teams has awarded millions of dollars of grant support to hundreds of non-profit organizations working on our shared mission of creating sustainable, positive change in the community and environment.
