Rockwell Collins Charitable Corporation

Rockwell Collins is known around the world for its quality, reliable aviation products. They are also known as a corporate citizen with a commitment and involvement in education, especially supporting science technology, engineering and mathematics. Whether it's mentoring a FIRST LEGO League team, tutoring a disadvantaged student or donating computers, Rockwell Collins and its employees are making their communities better places to live and work. They believe in inspiring the next generation of engineers and innovators and building strong, vital communities as a way to ensure the success of our business.

Rockwell Collins makes charitable contributions to a variety of nonprofit organizations in the U.S. and around the world. The Rockwell Collins Charitable Corporation was established for the exclusive purpose of supporting qualified non-for-profit organizations in the communities where their employees live and work. These grants are targeted for major projects and programs and generally total $5,000 or more. Priority funding areas include Education, especially Math, Science, Engineering and Technology, and Arts & Culture, especially projects involving youth.

Grants are available in geographic areas of the United States where Rockwell Collins has facilities and a substantial number of employees (generally 100 or more). All grant requests submitted for regions outside of Rockwell Collins' headquarter community should be coordinated though the local Rockwell Collins Human Resources manager.

Budgeting for these grants is done annually, with approval in October. They request that grant applications are submitted prior to September 1, preceeded by an email or phone call notification or inquiry. Approved grants are paid quarterly.

My research of Rockwell Collins locations shows that they are co-located with BDPA chapters in Atlanta, Bay Area, Boston, Charlotte, Chicago, Dallas, Detroit, Houston, Los Angeles, New York, No. Virginia, Orlando, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Seattle, So. Florida, St. Louis, Triangle (Raleigh), Twin Cities and Washington DC.

Is your chapter interested in partnering with BETF on a grant proposal to Rockwell Collins Charitable Corporation? Are there any Rockwell Collins' employees active in BDPA?

BDPA Chicago and BETF will partner on a $5,000 grant proposal to Rockwell Collins. They are accepting application during the month of August … so that is our target for getting this done!
