Pratt & Whitney Foundation

The employees at Pratt & Whitney employees generously volunteer their time and energy to make our local communities better places. They participate in many local projects and community efforts such as serving meals in homeless shelters, building houses for Habitat for Humanity, fund-raising for charities, acting as Big Brothers and Big Sisters and sponsoring annual food and clothing drives. To support and encourage their employees' community efforts, Pratt & Whitney proudly offers the following employee programs:
  1. Volunteer Grant Program -- Regular, full-time employees may apply for a $250 grant for non-profit organizations to which they volunteer. To be eligible, an employee must be actively involved with the organization for at least one year and volunteer a minimum of 60 hours per calendar year. For more information on the Volunteer Grant Program, click here.
  2. Community Power Grant Program -- A team of Pratt & Whitney volunteers, consisting of 5 to 15 people, chooses a local educational institution or non-profit human services organization in need of support. The Pratt & Whitney team and the non-profit partner then select a project that furthers the goals of the organization. Each team member must work on the project for a minimum of 15 hours over a two to six month period. Upon completion of the project, the partner organization receives a $2,500 grant from Pratt & Whitney.
