About Juniper


Improving quality of life for the next generation.

Juniper strives to enrich lives across the globe. Our charitable efforts are closely aligned with our mission to connect everything and empower everyone. Juniper is a company built on innovation, and we believe in supporting innovative philanthropic programs that create a network of opportunities for future generations.

We support communities where we have the greatest presence of employees, customers, and partners. Our giving is centered on the Juniper Networks Foundation Fund, employee volunteer programs, matching gifts, and disaster relief.

K-12 STEM Initiatives

Our Foundation Committee is made up of passionate Juniper employees committed to making a meaningful difference. The Juniper Networks Foundation Fund inspires the next generation of engineers, critical thinkers, and technical thought leaders. Through it, we participate in K-12 science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) programs, targeted especially at girls, the underprivileged, and underrepresented students.

Aiming to make lasting, meaningful differences in the world, the Foundation has granted more than $13 million to nonprofit STEM partner organizations since it was formed more than a decade ago. Most recently, in 2016, the Juniper Foundation approved grants for the following organizations:

Apps for Good (UK)
Cristo Rey San Jose High School
Girls Who Code
MK Level Playing Field Institute
New Jersey Institute of Technology

Volunteerism and Matching Gifts

Juniper provides employee volunteer opportunities for up to 40 hours a year per employee. Colleagues may volunteer for shelter programs, such as Habitat for Humanity, and for food kitchens, community cleanup, and other activities. Juniper also provides donation matching for up to $1000 per year per full-time employee.

Juniper Networks and Habitat for Humanity

Juniper teams with Habitat for Humanity to help improve lives.

Disaster Relief

During the past three years, Juniper provided nearly $150,000 to support disaster relief efforts in eight countries: Argentina, Bosnia, Colombia, Croatia, India, Nepal, Philippines, and Serbia.

Living our Values

Juniper believes that extraordinary outcomes are the result of inquisitive thinking and open collaboration. We remain authentic to our own culture in part by building relationships with nonprofit organizations that complement our corporate values, which emphasize bold aspirations, building trust, and making a meaningful difference.

Juniper’s philanthropic activities are an important part of who we are as a global organization. They help us further our commitment to making a significant, positive impact on communities worldwide.
