Fortune Brands Home and Security Inc, parent company of Therma-Tru, will give $400,000 over three years to The Nature Conservancy, a global conservation organization. It’s the continuation of a three-year relationship that’s already seen $245,000 in donations to the conservancy group as part of the company’s Fortunate Giving program.

CEO Chris Klein says the program was designed “to support organizations where our associates are personally involved, where there is a connection to our local community or our business and where our efforts can best contribute to the public good. The Nature Conservancy partnership is important to our business because it focuses on protecting vital natural resources in the regions where our employees live and work.”

The contributions will be earmarked for freshwater programs in the Great Lakes and around the globe.

“The growing water crisis presents a daunting challenge for both people and nature, but hope for recovery is great. Fortune Brands’ support of The Nature Conservancy’s local efforts in the Great Lakes and our global freshwater initiative gives us the opportunity to work at visionary scales for real and profound change,” says Michelle Carr, Illinois state director of The Nature Conservancy.
