Investing in our Community

Inspiring harmony—in every day, in every life.

At Wind River, we passionately pursue harmony. Every day, we strive to leave the world a little better than we found it—through our employee development programs, our community involvement, and the soothing notes of our signature products.

Inside our facility, we support our employees with people-first workplace programs, education development and family-first policies. And in our community, we partner with local nonprofits and national organizations whose efforts support our neighbors and meet vital needs.

Just as waves of sound resonate, bringing beauty and comfort to everyone within earshot—we believe simple actions can have the same effect. One small act of kindness has the power to inspire another, until change reverberates through an entire community. And at Wind River, we don’t simply make chimes. We shape environments—at our company, in our community, and beyond.

Chime in.

Every month, Wind River chooses a different charitable partner. This month, we are donating 20% of our online sales profits to Brain & Behavior Research Foundation. Learn more about this month’s charitable partner and past partners below.

Charity of the Month: Brain & Behavior Research Foundation

 

The Brain & Behavior Research Foundation’s (BBRF) mission is to alleviate suffering caused by mental illness, by awarding grants to organizations involved in mental illness research. During the month of August, 20% of all online sales will be donated to this remarkable organization.

 

The BBRF’s grants aim for breakthroughs and advances in scientific research to help understand causes, and in turn improve treatments, for a wide range of mental illnesses. The Foundation’s administrative costs and fundraising efforts are done through outside grants, so 100% of all donor contributions for research go directly to the BBRF.

 

Since its inception in 1987, the BBRF has awarded over $408 million in grants, which have led to discoveries benefiting children and adults with mental illnesses such as depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, autism, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, and anxiety disorders like obsessive-compulsive and post-traumatic stress disorders.

 

Wind River is proud to support the BBRF this month, and we encourage you to consider their mission when making your wind chime purchase.  In addition to support from organizations like Wind River Chimes, the Foundation also accepts donations in honor of those who have been affected by mental health in some form.
