A Spirit of Giving

In today’s corporate sector, the concept of philanthropy has undergone a significant transformation, shifting decisively from routine charitable giving to a more purposeful and participatory approach. Companies small and large now recognize the importance of being strategic and proactive in their philanthropic endeavors, as the focus is no longer solely on financial contributions but on fostering genuine, sustainable change through direct involvement and a thoughtful, engaged commitment to making a meaningful difference in the world.


One way in which ABCorp exemplifies the true essence of philanthropy is by weaving compassion into our corporate culture. In fact, it was this level of compassion that led us to establish ABCorp 3D in the first place.

While our parent company, ABCorp, has been in business since 1795, ABCorp 3D’s journey began as the COVID-19 pandemic swept across the globe, causing a shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE) for frontline workers. As we experienced a global level of loss and uncertainty, we recognized the pressing need and swiftly pivoted our operations to manufacture face shields for local hospitals using 3D printing technology.

In the face of adversity, our commitment to innovation and social responsibility became the driving force behind this monumental shift, as we sought to contribute meaningfully to the global effort to protect frontline workers and address the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic.

From there, we ventured into additive manufacturing and ABCorp 3D was born.

Our expertise in 3D printing technology allowed us to produce high-quality face shields at an accelerated pace, contributing to the global effort to protect healthcare workers. Our commitment went beyond profit margins; it was a demonstration of innovation meeting compassion.

As markets began to evolve, so did we.


Beyond our work in providing life-changing prosthetics, ABCorp 3D extends our reach into the community through annual holiday coat drives and gift trees, demonstrating a commitment to making a positive impact beyond the realm of technology.

While winter is often a precursor to the holiday season, it also serves as a stark reminder of the challenges faced by children experiencing homelessness and financial insecurity. ABCorp recognizes this, and for the last 12 years, we have organized a holiday coat drive, partnering with Cradles to Crayons. Cradles to Crayons is the largest national nonprofit that focuses solely on ending children’s clothing insecurities by providing millions of essentials every year.

ABCorp 3D’s employees come together to donate gently used coats or purchase new ones, ensuring that children in need can experience the warmth and dignity that a proper winter coat provides. The collected coats are then distributed to the families that need them most.

The coat drive is more than just a charitable act; it symbolizes ABCorp 3D’s commitment to inclusivity and care for the entire community beyond the world of prosthetics. By addressing a basic need like warmth, ABCorp 3D acknowledges that philanthropy should be holistic, purposeful, and include a shared responsibility across every member of the company.


The essence of the holiday season lies in the joy of giving and receiving. ABCorp 3D amplifies this joy through our annual gift tree initiative. Adorning the office with a beautifully decorated tree, employees can select an ornament on the tree that holds the wishes and needs of children in the community, from essential items to simple luxuries, inviting employees to become holiday heroes.

The result is an outpouring of generosity that goes far beyond the walls of the company. The carefully chosen gifts are distributed directly to each ornament’s corresponding families, creating a more personalized and intimate connection between ABCorp 3D and the community we serve.

As we can tell, philanthropy is often most effective when it extends beyond financial contributions.


In a world where profit margins often take precedence, ABCorp 3D’s story stands as a testament to the impact intertwining business strategy with social responsibility can have on the world. As we continue to navigate the post-pandemic era, our story serves as a beacon, reminding us that true success is measured not just in financial gains but in the positive impact we leave on the world.
