As part of the company's pledge to invest in local communities following the enactment of the tax reform legislation, the investments include new or accelerated partnerships with organisations that improve Science, Technology,
Engineering and Math (STEM) education, enhance transition and health services for veterans and their families, and enrich local communities.
"This investment is yet another example of how Boeing is putting tax reform to work," said Dennis Muilenburg, chairman, Boeing. "Already, we have expanded our Dollars for Doers matching programme to reward employees who give their time and resources in support of causes important to them.”
Muilenburg also outlined that these additional charitable and philanthropic contributions, are on track to surpass USD200 million in total communities giving in this year.
The investment package will help launch Boeing's new First to Mars initiative, a comprehensive experiential learning framework that encourages interest in STEM and inspires the next generation to see the future in space as their future with Boeing.
