Parametric Charitable Giving
Parametric is committed to making a difference in the communities we live in by volunteering our time and expertise, raising awareness, and providing financial support and donations.
Every year thousands of animals in our community need a second chance. Animal Humane Society provides these animals with food, shelter, medical care, and, most important, the love they deserve.
Parametric formed a team to participate in the 2018 Walk for Animals event. The 2.5-mile walk was attended by more than 8,000 people and 3,000 animals. It took place at Theodore Wirth Park in Minneapolis and raised $913,606.07 for AHS.

Twin Cities Habitat is committed to building quality of life, health, and prosperity through the production and preservation of homeownership—because homes and families are the foundation of successful communities. A Brush with Kindness provides painting, landscaping, and repairs to qualifying low-income homeowners who have unmet home-repair needs. A Brush with Kindness was founded in the Twin Cities and has been replicated by hundreds of Habitat affiliates nationwide.
Over the course of three days, employees scraped, primed, and painted a house for a very deserving couple through the A Brush with Kindness program.

Jeremiah Program offers one of the nation’s most successful strategies for transforming families from poverty to prosperity two generations at a time. Jeremiah prepares determined single mothers to excel in the workforce, readies their children to succeed in school, and reduces generational dependence on public assistance.
We assembled 24 welcome baskets to donate to Jeremiah Program. Each basket provided families with basic household necessities (sheets, towels, cleaning supplies, toys and books for kids, cooking utensils, and toiletry items) that are useful when settling into a new home.
