Compassion is at the core of what we do at MITER Brands. Formed in 2015 through MI Windows and Doors, our nonprofit MITER Foundation enables us to work locally and nationally to identify community needs while supporting causes and people closest to our hearts.
*The MITER Foundation was officially established in 2015, but our history of giving has been ongoing for decades. Data updated 3/31/23.
Windows of opportunity for a brighter future
Together with our MI and Milgard brands, we take a people-first approach that transcends our business and helps ensure a better future for others. Our local outreach work includes fundraising initiatives and events for groups.
Formed in 2015, the MITER Foundation was born out of a sense of care and compassion from the MI Windows and Doors team. Over the years, the MITER Foundation has expanded from local charities to a nationwide presence.
We partner with organizations to drive our MITER Brands people-first culture in communities throughout the country.
We deploy committees within our organization to research, plan and execute fundraising initiatives to support the local and national organizations.
