IC Cares Foundation was established in 2011 as the philanthropic arm of IC Corporation to support humanitarian efforts and improve the quality of life in the communities locally where we live and work. However, the Foundation also supports philanthropy efforts globally, especially in the area of disaster relief, and medical research and investigation.

 

IC Corporation encourages its employees to volunteer their time and services in conjunction with the principle of the IC Cares Foundation. Also, employees are encouraged to seek out and identify organizations that support the social projects identified herein for potential funding.
