Boeing has donated US$1 million to seven
nonprofit organizations supporting mental health, veterans,
well-being and community programs around the world.
Boeing's Well Being organization funded the
donation as part of the annual Boeing Moves the World event, a
global walk that brings together thousands of employees to
highlight the importance of health and well-being.
In the U.S., donations benefited five nonprofit
organizations: the National Alliance on Mental Illness; the Trevor
Project; the Yellow Ribbon Fund; Team Red, White & Blue; and the
Travis Manion Foundation. These organizations provide mental
health and veterans services throughout the nation.
the U.S., beneficiaries were Soldier On, Ltd. in Australia and the
Royal Air Force 100 Appeal in the UK. Soldier On, Ltd. helps
Australian veterans and families reintegrate into civilian life,
while the Royal Air Force 100 Appeal commemorates the achievements
of the Royal Air Force and all those who have served.
donation also includes $250,000 for nonprofit organizations in
communities where Boeing has a presence. The funds will be awarded
in $25,000 increments to 10 Boeing work sites around the world and
then donated to local nonprofit organizations. The 10 sites will
be selected based on employee and leadership participation in the
Boeing Moves the World event. The selected sites will be announced
"Donations will benefit programs that support our
well-being, our heroes and our communities," said Greg Marchand,
director of Global Benefits. "Our employees are actively engaged
in improving their health and well-being all while living the
Boeing mission to help others and inspire the world."
