Bosch seeks long-lasting solutions to make the community a better place
Surprising our community partners
Military veterans, nonprofit organizations and volunteers are heroes in our communities. We wanted to show our appreciation and gratitude to one of our nonprofit partners, Gleaners Community Food Bank, and the veterans at one of their partners, Piquette Square with some surprises. Check out the video to watch highlights from the day and to see the surprises for local veterans and our friends at Gleaners.
The Bosch Community Fund
The Bosch Community Fund, the corporate foundation for Bosch in North America was established in 2011 to provide community engagement and philanthropic support on behalf of our company. The Fund focuses on the enrichment of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education and advancing environmental sustainability initiatives. We partner with 501(c)(3) organizations and educational institutions across the country to provide quality project-based learning hands-on learning opportunities for students and professional development for teachers.
To our partners.
From our team at the Bosch Community Fund, we are hoping you are all safe and healthy.
Due to the COVID-19 crisis, there have been wide-spread implications to the nonprofit sector that will likely continue into the coming months. For many of our partners, that has meant cancelling or postponing projects and programs that were planned this year. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you need to make an adjustment to your grant regarding the time frame and/or topic. We are happy to work with you.
We expect that all of our operations will continue uninterrupted with our team working remotely. This includes processing grant applications and grant check mailings, as usual. Please contact your program officer if you have questions.
All the best wishes from our team to you.
