About OMRON Foundation, Inc.

Founded in 1989, the OMRON Foundation, Inc. (OFI) was established to coordinate the charitable efforts of all OMRON offices in the US to achieve the greatest positive social impact. The Omron Foundation is a not-for-profit organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and is funded by OMRON's subsidiaries in North America, who contribute a portion of their sales. The Foundation divides its charitable resources to benefit the following focus areas:

  • Disaster Relief
  • Basic Needs (Food, Clothing and Shelter)
  • Disabilities
  • Education (Elementary education to college education with a focus on engineering, science, mathematics and technology)
  • Health – Wellness, research, disease prevention, and treatment
  • Japanese-American Cross Cultural Enrichment
