STEM: Planting a seed
The future of innovation is in the hands of our young people. That’s why we’ve invested in STEM education initiatives, focusing specifically on those that empower and encourage girls, as well as underprivileged and underrepresented young people.
Disaster relief: restoring connections
When disaster strikes, immediate and ongoing relief is vital to communities desperate to rebuild. But it comes at a huge cost. To do our part, since 2015, we've dontated more than $1 million to support relief efforts around the world.
Volunteering: The gift of time
Lending a helping hand is part of our way of working, which is why our people are passionate about supporting the communities they're connected to. Full-time employees can spend five paid working days a year volunteering for a cause they care about. Through Juniper’s Matching Gift Program, we’ll match donations up to $1000 per year, per employee.
The Juniper Foundation is proud to support the following organizations committed to empowering girls and underrepresented students.
