On the occasion of Giving Tuesday, December 3, Boeing announced the payment of $ 48 million to 404 organizations in 50 countries.
These grants will fund humanitarian programs in 2020 and beyond. With these donations, Boeing is on track to exceed the $ 230 million paid in 2019. This amount includes charitable donations, aircraft manufacturer contributions, and employee donations.
Boeing’s charitable investments are amplified by employee donations. In 2019, they donated nearly $ 40 million to charities, bringing the total over the last 10 years to more than $ 350 million. « Our employees exemplify Boeing’s values and unwavering commitment to the communities where we live and work, » said Dennis Muilenburg, Boeing’s Chief Executive Officer. « Our teams and community partners work closely together to inspire the next generation of aviation innovators, accompany our former soldiers, and initiate lasting change in the communities where we live. »
In France, Boeing has been a partner of the Léo Lagrange Federation since 2015 with an innovative educational program aimed at 11-15 year-olds, the « Leo Hub » and its professionalization component « Hub Métiers ». Boeing’s objective with Léo Lagrange is to introduce young people to the diversity of professions, particularly in the scientific and industrial sectors, and in particular in the buoyant aeronautics sector. To date, more than 1,800 adolescents have benefited from this initiative, which is present in 38 regional structures throughout France.
