Over the decades, the NCR Foundation has supported civic causes, health and human services, arts and culture, and education. Today our grantmaking is directed to three key areas where we believe we can have the greatest impact -- STEM education, economic development and disaster response.
We are relentlessly focused on STEM education for students, particularly in underserved communities.
Our efforts to provide opportunity in under-served communities include funding financial empowerment and inclusion opportunities, fostering job creation and training for sustainable income and supporting micro-enterprise.
From natural disasters to the COVID pandemic, we step up in times of crisis.
NCR has long been committed to serving communities, from converting our factories to build rescue boats in the 1913 Great Dayton Flood to 2021, when we provided COVID relief support and 100,000 vaccinations in India and the Philippines.
The NCR Foundation’s investments in causes worldwide align with NCR’s ESG values. How we give is just as important as how we innovate.
Our strategy is to partner with nonprofit organizations to maximize impact and make a difference in our communities. We invest in organizations that align with our causes and values in the U.S. and globally.
All grantees must be charitable, nonprofit organizations that are classified as a 501(c)(3) public charity by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS). The NCR Foundation proactively identifies potential recipients whose mission and programs align with its strategy and no longer accepts unsolicited grant applications.
