The Foundation

The Sensata Foundation, launched in 2017, is a 501(c)3 organization whose objective is twofold:

  • To benefit the communities in which the company operates
  • To foster a passion about STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics)

A message from our President & CEO

As we enter our second century, we want to leverage our own Sensata Technologies Foundation to make a greater impact on our world through more focused giving of our resources.”

STEM knowledge has many benefits that transfer to a wide variety of careers. Critical thinking, management, and technology skills are used in many jobs besides engineering.

Our vision is a world where all students have the opportunity and encouragement to develop a passion for STEM careers and all that they can make possible in the 21st century.

Sensata has a long and proud history of supporting the communities in which we operate. For nearly all of our 100-year history, we have been involved with outreach programs that nurture and support education, economic development, civic involvement, and diversity. In 2017, the Company founded the Sensata Foundation to more closely support qualifying charitable entities that support the Company’s core initiatives.

Today, our global customers choose Sensata for the engineering excellence, diversity of thought and manufacturing scale we deliver. To this end, we believe that it makes sense for our Foundation to focus on empowering the next generation of engineers and supporting communities where we live and work.

Sensata will annually provide local community grants to qualifying 501(c)3 charitable entities that support the Company’s core initiatives including promoting Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education and supporting our communities. All organizations that receive philanthropic support must employ a non-discrimination policy and provide information detailing their impact on the community and financial responsibility.
