Boeing gives a quarter of a billion dollars

Aerospace and engineering giant Boeing has announced that its corporate giving will exceed $230m in 2018, driven by $55min new charitable grants, as well as increases in business and employee contributions.

The new charitable grants package will support 443 non-profit organisations in 47 countries, including $13m for veterans' recovery and rehabilitation programmes and workforce transition services.

Boeing corporate giving is focused on increasing access to STEM learning in underserved and underrepresented communities; improving technical workforce skills; and supporting military families and veterans. Boeing investments also address unique local challenges critical to communities where the company operates. In the UK Boeing is supporting the Air League, providing aviation and flight school scholarships for wounded veterans.

"Our people have unique skills and an unwavering passion for making a difference in the world, both through our products and services and the ways we give back to our communities," said Dennis Muilenburg, Boeing chairman, president and chief executive officer. "When that's combined with our professional networks, partnerships and financial resources, we have the potential to drive positive, lasting change across the globe in important areas such as STEM learning and veterans' support."
