powering  what's  possible

Potential is distributed equally.


Opportunity is not.


NCR Foundation exists to be a catalyst of opportunity and change. We are relentlessly focused on advancing STEM education for students, especially in under-served communities. Our efforts to eliminate poverty and drive economic development include fostering job creation and provident training on critical workforce skills. And we step up in times of crisis through our disaster response work. We leverage our talents and resources to make our communities better.


We partner, invest and volunteer to make our communities and our world a better place.

Community quarterbacks. Technology rock stars. Crisis coordinators.
We partner to help non-profits reach more to do more. Today, that means advancing technology, STEAM education, disaster relief and volunteering all around the world.

Because how we give is just as important as how we innovate

NCR Foundation Focus: Westside Future Fund

This five-year partnership and $1M investment pairs NCR with Georgia Tech, a renowned research university, through the Westside Future Fund to give under-served students access to STEAM technology education at Westside Atlanta’s Hollis Innovation Academy.

NCR Foundation Focus: Junior Achievement 3DE

NCR Foundation is a state-wide sponsor of Junior Achievement's innovative 3DE School program that re-engineers high school education to be more relevant, experiential, and authentically-connected to the complexities of the real world in order to more fully prepare today’s students for the demands of tomorrow’s economy. In 2020-21 they will launch four additional schools in Georgia (raising the total sites to 10 across the state), with the addition of a site in Atlanta Public Schools, and the launch of two sites in DeKalb County School District and one in Savannah-Chatham County Public School System.

NCR Foundation Focus: UNICEF

We help parents and children in Brazil and Serbia build a better future through STEAM education initiatives, such as free programming workshops that help children learn to develop algorithmic thinking and programming using simple code.

NCR Foundation Focus: Global volunteers

From forging mentor relationships to delivering meals to donating blood, our volunteers get involved to help our global and local communities.

  • 1,000 ambassadors
  • 30,000 employees
  • 120,000 hours
  • 1,250 events

Keeping kids learning remotely during COVID-19

When COVID-19 happened and schools closed, not all students had access to the technology they needed to learn remotely. Already partnering with Inspiredu to donate 2,000 PCs for students over the past 5 years, we helped Inspiredu upgrade their VOIP network in partnership with other technology companies so Inspiredu can meet the demand for technology—today and tomorrow.

NCR Foundation grant strategy
We use a partnership grant strategy through investments with nonprofit partners.
Our overall grant allocations are a combination of short-term small grants and deeper investments through impact grants. See grant limitations here.
Potential is distributed equally. Opportunity is not.
You can help us change that. Get in touch to learn how.
