A Culture of Giving
We believe that the time and talent of our people is as important and impactful as any donations they give. That’s why we encourage employees to volunteer their time and skills to support local communities and organizations. Our volunteer program aligns employees with community organizations that benefit from their job skills.
EMPLOYEE GIVING TO EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS TOTALED
IN 2017 — MATCHED DOLLAR FOR DOLLAR BY RAYTHEON.
In 2017, natural disasters contributed to an unprecedented year of humanitarian crises. As Hurricane Maria approached Puerto Rico, the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite instrument Raytheon engineered for NASA-NOAA’s Suomi NPP satellite captured a thermal image of the hurricane’s eye.
Six Raytheon-built Coyote® UAVs also dropped out of a NOAA WP-3D Orion weather surveillance plane to record additional data from inside the eye.
We knew this storm posed a deadly threat to employees who work there and to the country at large.
Raytheon and our people stepped forward to provide broad relief support. Together, we pledged more than $600,000 to help victims of hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria. That includes direct company donations to relief organizations and matching grants for employee donations.
Raytheon committed $100,000 to the hurricane relief effort One America Appeal, a nonprofit launched by all five living former U.S. presidents. The One America Appeal will designate Raytheon's donation to the nonprofit United for Puerto Rico, established by the office of First Lady of Puerto Rico Beatriz Rossello, to help the affected citizens of the U.S. territory.
In addition, employees are supporting affected colleagues through the Raytheon Employee Disaster Relief Fund. In 2017, this fund provided individual grants of up to $10,000 to 40 Raytheon employees who are victims of natural disasters and other emergencies in federally declared disaster areas.
