We partner with organizations that align with our philanthropic priorities to make our communities more productive and sustainable. Our employees are engaged in the creation and inspiration of our future workforce. To make a greater impact with our charitable resources, we focus our giving on a targeted number of community partners. While our main charitable focus is STEM education, we recognize the importance of enhancing the vibrancy and sustainability of our communities in other ways. Our focused giving also targets programs that provide essential services as well as those that foster creativity, innovation, civic leadership and disaster relief.
