Paying it forward

it Forward

We believe companies should give back to the communities that support them.

We proudly pay it forward with strategic, financial, and volunteer support to a variety of nonprofit organizations in four key areas of impact, with a focus on equity:
Arts, Education, Health & Human Services, and Neighborhood & Community.

Change agents we support

Crane on Board

Our associates meaningfully engage with community organizations through our Crane on Board program. Our leaders serve on more than 80 non-profit boards and have donated 125,000+ hours since the program’s launch.

I proudly serve families that need to be close to their children in their time of need through Ronald McDonald House. During our meetings, we’ll often have a family speak to the board members about their experience at the House. There’s never a dry eye in the room. Seeing the impact of our support makes it all worthwhile!

Linda Cummings

Family Office Manager, board member at Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Ohio

St. Vincent Family Services is strengthening Ohio by providing children and families with the skills to tackle life’s challenges. I’m a father of four children. Being able to help our youth succeed in school and in life is very rewarding, both personally and professionally.

Eric Van Buskirk

President of Crane Family Office, board member at St. Vincent Family Services

As a child growing up, we were very poor. I had four brothers and sisters, and we all shared the same bedroom. We were often hungry. That’s why Sojourners is important to me—I can relate to the young people in the program because I was one of them. And what's not to like about helping young people get back on their feet and in the right direction?
