How Bosch Builds Community

Bosch takes a focused approach to community investment with an emphasis on local decision making and associate engagement.

Local Communities

We strive to increase Bosch community impact by investing in local and targeted nonprofit partners to support associate volunteerism and local needs.

Our Associates

Bosch associates volunteer with a variety of nonprofits and community activities such as beach cleanups, supporting animal shelters, and planting rain gardens.

National Volunteer Programs

Bosch purposefully invests in a limited number of national nonprofit organizations. Organizations like FIRST® and Adler Zooniverse enable associate volunteering and impact across the United States.

Bosch Community Fund

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 the company. Bosch Community Fund convenes community partners together to connect, communicate, and collaborate.

Virtual Volunteering

Adler Zooniverse is the world’s largest and most popular platform for people-powered research providing virtual volunteering opportunities. It is easy for anyone to contribute to real academic research, on their own computer or cell phone, at their own convenience.

Projects include unlocking vast data sets, tracking migration patterns, discovering planets around distant stars, providing insights on cancer, and fighting resistance to antibiotics.

Bosch’s Legacy of Social Responsibility

Our approach to community builds on our founder’s legacy. By 1929, Robert Bosch had donated the equivalent of over $300 million dollars (in 2023). For the company’s 50th anniversary in 1934, Bosch donated a hospital in Stuttgart, Germany. After his death, the Robert Bosch Foundation was established in 1964, which holds 92% of the company’s shares.

Robert Bosch

It is my intention, apart from the alleviation of all kinds of hardship, to promote the moral, physical, and intellectual development of the people.

Our Values

Our values reflect the manner in which we run our business: our professional ethics in dealing with our business partners, investors, employees, and society.
