Charitable Contributions

Rockwell Collins makes charitable contributions to a variety of nonprofit organizations in the United States and around the world.

Our giving priorities include education with an emphasis in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) and arts and culture with an emphasis on youth development. We believe that by strengthening the quality of education and providing opportunities for youth involvement and leadership, we are helping students prepare for the future.

Rockwell Collins also contributes to health and human services and civic organizations. We give special consideration to qualifying organizations in which our  employees are involved as volunteers. However, the majority of gifts to these organizations are made through Rockwell Collins United Way corporate contributions or employee campaigns.

Rockwell Collins makes grants available for programs and initiatives. We support fundraising events and sponsorship opportunities in the communities where our employees live and work.
