About the Motorola Solutions Foundation
The Motorola Solutions Foundation is the charitable and philanthropic arm of Motorola Solutions, originally founded in 1953. With employees located around the globe, Motorola Solutions seeks to benefit the communities where it operates. The company achieves this by making strategic grants, forging strong community partnerships and fostering innovation.
Awarding over $9 million in grants in 2017, which supported more than 3 million students and first responders affiliated with about 260 organizations in 37 countries, our funding and involvement goes beyond helping those in law enforcement. The foundation also supports organizations that represent veterans, professional and volunteer fire service personnel, EMS professionals and disaster response professionals. In particular, the foundation focuses on:
- Education – Supporting programs that advance science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education, preparing our next generation of innovators
- Public safety – Making our communities safer by using our leadership in public safety innovation to provide resources to first responders and the communities they serve
- Disaster relief – Partnering with humanitarian organizations to provide relief to disaster victims and providing vital support to emergency workers who are at the front lines of disaster relief
- Employee giving – Providing our employees with matching programs in the United States and globally
