              Our Future: Tomorrow's Innovators

              Our Future

              By leveraging our total resources, including corporate grants, partnerships with higher educational institutions and employee volunteerism, Boeing is committed to helping children and youth achieve their potential through educational enrichment and support programs that promote academic success, independence and economic sustainability.

              We work to create cradle-to-career pathways to strengthen and diversify the pipeline of skilled workers. We seek to improve kindergarten readiness, particularly in mathematics; to generate interest and sustained participation in STEM disciplines through hands-on, experiential learning; and to graduate more students who are ready to enter industry-related careers and/or STEM focused post-secondary education.

              Our Homes: Dynamic Communities

              Maintaining a local focus and flexibility to respond to local needs is vital to Boeing’s charitable investment and employee engagement strategy. In order to succeed on this front, we focus our expertise and employee volunteerism on issues that are of importance to each site and region of the world our company operates.

              This local focus ladders up to our global approach of creating opportunities in STEM education, workforce preparation and support for veterans and their families.

              Our Employees

              Going beyond financial support, Boeing employees share their time and skills to build better communities worldwide through mentorship, community service projects and board service to nonprofit organizations.

              Employees Community Fund
              One of the largest employee-owned and managed funds of its kind in the world, the Employees Community Fund (ECF) of The Boeing Company has been empowering employees to make greater impact by pooling their tax-deductible donations for more than 60 years. Employee advisory boards provide combined employee donations to nonprofits in their community through ECF grants. Boeing pays all administrative costs so 100 percent of every employee dollar helps strengthen local communities.

              Seeking Support

              As a stakeholder in the success of our communities, we lead responsibly to help address challenges that are bigger than any one company’s interests. Our contributions and efforts are focused on making a significant difference in the lives of people around the world—now and for generations to come. We support organizations that are leaders in what they do, demonstrate innovation, and align and collaborate with others to achieve workable solutions to community issues. Our community investments are managed locally and grant making strategies are tailored by locations to address the specific needs of their region.

              Additionally, qualifying charitable or educational organizations can apply for grants from the Employees Community Fund (ECF) of The Boeing Company, which has been empowering employees to pool their tax-deductible donations for greater impact for more than 60 years. Employee advisory boards work to locally distribute combined employee donations, which are made through recurring payroll deductions or one-time gifts, to nonprofits in their community. Boeing pays all administrative costs so 100 percent of every employee dollar helps strengthen local communities.

              ECF grants have gone toward community projects such as aiding the homeless, stocking food banks, helping at-risk children succeed in school, providing job training for the unemployed, funding critical health services, supporting veterans programs and more.

              • ECF makes grants to U.S.-based IRS 501(c)(3) qualified charitable or educational organizations
              • U.S. organizations need a 501(c) (3)-qualified tax ID number to apply.
