Aerojet Rocketdyne Foundation

Vision

To inspire the next generation of students, improve STEM teaching and build local partnerships to grow our nation’s future workforce.

The Aerojet Rocketdyne (AR) Foundation, formerly GenCorp Foundation, the individual philanthropic arm of the company and its U.S.-based subsidiary companies, Aerojet Rocketdyne and Easton Development Company, was established in 1999 to provide charitable resources in the communities where the company does business and where its employees live, work and volunteer.

With a commitment to STEM - Science, Technology, Engineering, Math - Education, the AR Foundation seeks to inspire students’ excitement about STEM; improve STEM teaching, and support STEM partnerships with schools and nonprofit organizations.

Since 1999, the Aerojet Rocketdyne Foundation has contributed almost $12 million to schools and nonprofit organizations through grants, scholarships and matching gifts.

In 2015, the Aerojet Rocketdyne Foundation contributed $558,253 in grants, matching gifts and scholarships.

The Aerojet Rocketdyne Foundation does not accept paper Letters of Inquiry (LOI) or Grant Proposals. Grant proposals will be accepted online by invitation only.
