Our grant received more than 300 applications from organizations across the country. From that competitive pool, we selected 24 innovative nonprofit organizations to receive grant funding. Amounts ranged from $25,000-$50,000. Recipients of this grant are nonprofit organizations dedicated to causes important to Southwest and our communities: K-12 STEM education, building a resilient workforce, and leadership development.
The focus of this grant was to help empower organizations that develop the workforce of tomorrow. Supporting these types of organizations builds stronger communities, and addresses a real business need—ensuring we have a strong Employee pipeline in the years to come.
We are thrilled to support the efforts of these extraordinary organizations and will continue to champion communities across the globe the Southwest Way!
