Aug. 3, 2021 - Each year, through the Crane Fund for Widows & Children, Crane associates are afforded the opportunity to nominate and provide a financial gift to local organizations who help underserved populations in the communities where our associates work and live. It’s a longstanding practice based on the ethos of Crane founder, R.T. Crane, who in 1904 declared, “a loyal employee gives something besides his labor and the employer should recognize that.”

R.T. Crane established a compassionate business culture rooted in community giving and taking care of his employees that lives on today. 

Toward the end of R.T. Crane’s life, he set aside $1 million to take care of former associates who were no longer able to support themselves. Ten years after R.T. Crane passed, his family established the Crane Fund for Widows & Children (CFW&C), which provides direct assistance to those in need.

This year, Crane Aerospace & Electronics – a business unit of Crane Co. – nominated 109 organizations in the eight communities Crane A&E operates (Lynnwood, Wash.; Burbank, Calif.; Chandler, Ariz.; Elyria, Ohio; West Caldwell, N.J.; Fort Walton Beach, Fla.; Lyon, France; Kaohsiung, Taiwan). Each of these charitable organizations were presented gifts ranging from $1,000-$5,000 by their sponsoring Crane A&E associate.

"We are proud to be part of a Crane culture that knows the importance of strong corporate citizenship. It's our responsibility to positively impact the communities where we operate, and we're pleased to empower our employees by utilizing the Crane Fund for Widows & Children to support the causes that are most important to them."

— Meggan Pavlick, Crane A&E HR Director
