The Culpepper Foundation

Our purpose is to honor God in all that we do and serve Him by serving others.

Progressive Foam was founded in 1992 with the intent of generating profits that could fuel charitable giving projects. Giving back to those that are less fortunate has always been important to Progressive Foam's founder, Pat Culpepper, and his family. They built their family-owned company with that mentality at the cornerstone. 

After over 20 years of business, Progressive Foam has had the opportunity to contribute to countless fundraisers, charities and missions across the globe. Here are a few of the projects that we have had the pleasure of contributing to over the years:

  • bread-of-life-center
  • Healthy-is-Beautiful
  • taxi-foreign-pft
Bread of Life Center - Kipsongo, Kenya

In Kenya, the slum named "Kipsongo", meaning "the place of hopelessness" contains over 3,000 souls in need, mostly women and children. PFT joined forces with the Seeds Ministry, which provides schooling and a medical clinic for over 250+ children aged pre-K through 4th grade. They also nourish an additional 350+ children from the slum two times a day, six days a week, and run a full time orphange that is home to 62 children.

Tuscarawas County, Ohio

We contribute to various charitable events around our headquarters, including the Movers and Shakers Against Parkinson’s Event. Movers and Shakers raised funds to benefit the development and implementation of world class movement disorder care at Union Hospital.

Transportation Project - Manilla, Phillippines

PFT invested $23,000 in 1996, which provided employment for 14 years. Profits funded two health clinics a month, treating an average of 500 people per clinic. 120,000 people received free medicine, treatment, and gospel.
