GenCorp Foundation

The GenCorp Foundation endorses the company's commitment to make our communities stronger. Through grant-making, workplace giving and employee volunteerism, the GenCorp Foundation is dedicated to supporting the communities where our employees live, work and volunteer.

The GenCorp Foundation was established in 2000 to meet the charitable needs of the communities where the company conducts business. Its primary giving focus is education, specifically science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). This giving focus targets students to better prepare them to be educated citizens and contributing members of our nation's future workforce.

Since 2000, the GenCorp Foundation has given more than $7 million to schools and nonprofit organizations through grants, scholarships and matching gifts. The foundation also supports employees' philanthropic efforts through workplace giving, volunteerism and matching gifts.

In 2008, the GenCorp Foundation contributed $542,088 in grants and scholarships. It also matched $194,756 in educational gifts, disaster relief and Dollars for Doers funding. Company employees pledged $229,000 through our annual workplace giving campaign.

The GenCorp Foundation limits contributions to 501[c][3] U.S.-based nonprofit organizations located in the communities where Aerojet and GenCorp have a business presence. It appears that we have co-located BDPA chapters in: Bay Area, No. Virginia, Seattle and Washington DC.

Please let us know if you / your chapter has interest in partnering with BETF on a grant proposal to this funding source.
