Avnet launched a new Community Grants Program in 2023 and the final round of reviews is coming up in April. Avnet’s philanthropic and employee volunteer program, called Avnet Cares, strives to meet the needs of communities while also building a culture of hands-on volunteering within the company.
Through the new community grant program, Avnet is now accepting applications from eligible 501(c)3 nonprofit organizations and other government-recognized charities. Applications should align with one of Avnet’s four focus areas:
- STEM (Science, Technology, Environmental, and Math) – supporting programs that lead to productive career paths for young adults within the STEM field.
- Environment – encouraging technology programs and solutions that enable environmental sustainability through stewardship.
- DEI (Diversity, Equity and Inclusion) – investing in and advancing solutions to help ensure people from traditionally under-resourced communities are supported to reach their full potential.
- Communities in Crisis – providing support for critical humanitarian needs at Avnet locations and disaster relief for significant global incidents.
Preference is also given to organizations that impact communities where Avnet has a large base of employees, including the Dallas area.
