A GHAC and Hooper Commitment to Community
As a long-standing member of the Madison and Dane County communities, General Heating and Air Conditioning proudly participates in charitable community events and organizations. Yet General Heating could not do what it does for its community without the support of its employees, who are the core of General Heating’s success.
At a corporate level, the Hooper Foundation is dedicated to financially supporting community charities and encouraging employee involvement in local charitable organizations and events. Madison is General Heating’s home-base, but General Heating’s footprint extends beyond that, and so does our community involvement. With employees from all over the county, General Heating’s outreach efforts extend into many of our employee’s individual communities.
For more than 30 years, the Hooper Foundation has established priorities in the areas of health and wellness, education, hunger and homelessness, arts and culture, construction industry advancement, and matching funds. General Heating is proud of the generous funding of the Foundation by the action of its Board of Directors and the contributions made by our employees as part of our Employee Matching Gift Program. By investing in the Foundation, General Heating is making a long-term investment in the future of its community and the communities in which it serves.
Through its Employee Matching Gift Program, the Hooper Foundation matches employee donations to charitable organizations dollar-for-dollar. The Employee Matching Gift Program was created to encourage and help our employees contribute to their communities. A fund is set aside annually to match both Hooper Corporation’s and General Heating and Air Conditioning, Inc.’s employees’ generous charitable contributions. This program is a way for Hooper and General to make a positive impact in each community in which our employees are involved. Funding recipients must be 501(3)(c), or legally tax deductible.

Journey to Zero by Jeff Hanson, Safety Manager
For many years, I believed that achieving zero accidents was not possible.

What I did not understand, but I do today, was the power that can be harnessed when […]
