Caterpillar Foundation Donates $1 Million to Support Humanitarian Efforts 

IRVING, Texas – Oct. 24, 2023 – We are deeply saddened by the tragic events in Israel and the growing humanitarian crisis in the region. We remain hopeful that a peaceful resolution to the ongoing conflict will be found. Consistent with Caterpillar’s focus on supporting humanitarian efforts in times of need, through the Caterpillar Foundation, we are donating $1 million to non-profit organizations to support the needs of those impacted. Caterpillar Foundation will match contributions made by employees, retirees and dealer employees. Our thoughts remain with all victims and their loved ones.
