As a company, we believe it is important to support the communities where our employees live and where we conduct business. We encourage and support employees’ efforts to engage with their communitites through our corporate social responsibility program - Anixter Cares. 


 Anixter Cares promotes giving back to our local and wider communities through the four programs below.

Red Cross Gift Matching

Anixter operates in more than 50 countries, and because of our global reach, we have partnered with the Red Cross whose mission is to provide relief to victims of disasters around the world and help people prevent, prepare for and respond to emergencies. The members of the Red Cross and Red Crescent network work together toward common goals during times of crisis or disaster. 


We match funds given by employees to the Red Cross to double the donation value.

Charity Champions

A number of our employees have charities or causes that have a special place in their hearts which we help them support and raise funds for in various ways.


In the past we have raised money for and supported causes including the American Cancer Socienty, Breast Cancer Awareness, Step Out for Diabetes, the Make-A-Wish Foundation, toy drives for impoverished children and supported the opening of a new autism center.

Time Off to Volunteer

Many Anixter employees give their time and energy to nonprofit, charitable organizations. These organizations need and rely on the efforts of their volunteers. We support employees who volunteer, by providing time off from work, so they can donate their time, skills and knowledge to charitable causes close to their hearts.

Higher Education Gift Matching

Making a donation to a college or university is a way to demonstrate commitment to education. Anixter’s matching gift program is designed to support and enhance the generosity of our employees to higher education. We believe a gift to higher education is one way to help ensure that the quality of education remains high for future generations.
