Arconic creates breakthrough products that shape industries and solve our customers' toughest challenges – those that require ingenuity and engineering and technical expertise from the brightest minds. Arconic Foundation supports that mission by helping to prepare tomorrow's workforce for successful, rewarding careers that advance the future of manufacturing while keeping our communities strong and vibrant.
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 are 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.
Arconic Foundation allocates one-half of its grantmaking each year to Arconic's worldwide operating locations so that they can develop relevant strategies to address specific community needs and interests. The balance funds our 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 wellbeing of our communities in the event of natural disasters.
Grant applications to Arconic Foundation are by invitation only.
