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 philanthropic arm of Aerojet Rocketdyne Holdings 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 AR Foundation has contributed more than $11.3 million to schools and nonprofit organizations through grants, scholarships and matching gifts.

In 2014, the AR Foundation contributed $650,398 in grants, matching gifts and scholarships.

 

How to Apply for a Grant
