Access to technology and engineering for all is our mission
Connecting and strengthening global communities
The TE Connectivity Foundation is the corporate foundation of TE Connectivity and is committed to connecting and strengthening global communities through access to technology and engineering for all, with a focus on women and underserved populations. In 2017, the TE Connectivity Foundation provided one-year grants totaling $1.25 million to three organizations that advance this mission.
"I would like to thank the TE Connectivity Foundation for their leadership in supporting FIRST Global in its mission to inspire students from around the world to become the first truly connected generation cooperating to solve humanity’s most pressing challenges. I am confident that TE Connectivity Foundation’s early and significant support will help ensure the worldwide impact of FIRST Global."

"We believe that helping to build strong communities and increasing access to education and careers in engineering and technology is core to creating a sustainable global workforce and meaningful work opportunities for all. The three organizations we selected to support do just that, and we are excited to work with each of them and see the impact of their programs on women and underserved populations."
