Attleboro, Massachusetts, April 12, 2022 – The Sensata Technologies Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Sensata Technologies, today announced that it has opened its 2022-2023 grant cycle and invites qualifying U.S.-based 501(c)(3) charitable entities to apply for an annual grant. The application is available through Sensata Foundation’s website until Thursday, June 30, 2022.
The annual grant program furthers Sensata Foundation’s vision to empower the next generation of engineers and support communities where its employees live and work. In 2021, the Foundation awarded 12-month grants totaling $300,000 to 38 community agencies that address needs related to STEM education, community restoration, environmental sustainability and food insecurity, among others.
As part of integrating Sensata’s newly acquired companies, the Foundation made additional donations to employee-chosen charities in CA, IL, KS, MN and NY. The Foundation also contributed funds to non-profits chosen by employees for relief efforts associated with the pandemic in India and the disastrous tornados that affected states in the Midwest and South in the U.S.
“The challenges imposed by the pandemic demonstrated how integral charitable organizations are in building resilience and strength in communities,” said David Britton, President, Sensata Technologies Foundation. “The Foundation remains dedicated to its mission to be a neighbor of choice, and we want to reach more non-profits that improve access to STEM education and resources for disadvantaged communities. For 2022, we increased the grant funding amount to $350,000, and we hope this encourages more non-profits across the country, especially in states where Sensata operates, to apply. We look forward to working with our current and new partners.”
Sensata Foundation has awarded more than $1,000,000 in grant funding since it was established in 2017. As outlined in Sensata’s inaugural Sustainability Report, the Foundation represents the Company’s commitment to a better and more equitable future by directly supporting non-profits.
