Arconic Foundation supports programs that help prepare the 21st century engineering and advanced manufacturing workforce. It is an independently endowed foundation and the charitable arm of Arconic.
The primary goal of Arconic Foundation is to advance science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education and training worldwide, with a special emphasis on engaging and creating access for underrepresented and underserved groups. In addition, we’re helping to change the perception of manufacturing by generating excitement around the rewarding career opportunities available to the next generation of talent.
From career and technical education to the most advanced robotic and digital manufacturing disciplines, Arconic Foundation works with our nonprofit partners to give students an unprecedented view of the spectrum of STEM careers available to them. And our support helps provide the cutting-edge skills and hands-on experience that open doors to economic opportunity for individuals and communities around the globe.
We seek partners who share our values of inclusion and diversity, respect for the individual, integrity and a relentless focus on innovation and excellence. All of our partnerships deliver measurable, sustainable results, and many represent best practices that can be applied to benefit others.
Each year, Arconic Foundation provides an allocation to Arconic's worldwide operating locations so that they can develop relevant strategies to address specific community needs and interests. We also designate the remaining funding for global signature partnerships that drive impact across geographies.
In addition, the Foundation encourages a culture of volunteerism and supports employees in their volunteer efforts. We also work with Arconic locations on disaster relief efforts to ensure the resilience and well-being of our communities in the event of natural disasters.
Grant applications to Arconic Foundation are by invitation only.
