Donaldson Company Inc. has donated $100,000 to Direct Relief in support of global COVID-19 medical response and treatment efforts.

The Donaldson Foundation grant will help humanitarian organization Direct Relief provide equipment and resources to medical professionals on the front lines who protect the world's most vulnerable people.

Donaldson Foundation President Nathalye Blok said, "Whether it is sourcing and procuring masks or helping hospitals keep vital medical equipment operating, Donaldson Company and our employees have found numerous ways to help our communities during this unprecedented crisis. Inspired by the medical professionals battling COVID-19, we looked to Direct Relief, an organization that provides vital medical support and supplies to these dedicated professionals helping those who need it most, during times of crisis."
