At ON Semiconductor, we recognize the important role of museums in remembering the past and inspiring future generations. Acting as community spaces where people of all ages can attend, museums stand as a key vessel for intergenerational and life-long learning.
As we all have experienced within these past few months, the year 2020 has been one of uncertainty and change. Despite the challenges facing business and society, ON Semiconductor has steadfastly continued in its commitment to corporate social responsibility and giving back to communities through grant making. We at ON Semiconductor also know that these challenges bring opportunities to re-envision traditions and innovate new solutions.
The ON Semiconductor Foundation is committed to serving the needs of communities through the investment of resources. Its primary focus of giving is in the areas of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) Education, Health, Disaster Relief, Environment and Human Services.
Since 2016, ON Semiconductor has funded more than $5 million in grants, employee matching and in-kind donations, as well as sponsorships and dollars-for-doers for employee volunteerism.
