Our Micron Gives program encompasses philanthropy for both Micron Technology and the Micron Foundation. The foundation, a separate legal entity, is the primary funding source for our giving.
Our 2022 Micron Gives Year-End Summary shares the inspiration, innovation and value of collective action from the foundation and Micron team members around the world.
Micron Technology’s mission is to transform how the world uses information to enrich life for all.
The Micron Foundation builds on this mission to enrich lives by providing equitable opportunities for underrepresented populations, enriching our communities and increasing access to STEM education to create lasting social impact.
Enriching our communities extends beyond standard engagement practices and truly weaves a rich fabric among companies, governments, community leaders, neighborhoods, schools and citizens to drive social impact.
Our K-12 programs are funded by the Micron Foundation to create equitable environments and inspire learning so that all students and educators can pursue a future in STEM.
Chip Camp is designed for middle school students and filled with engaging, hands-on STEM activities that highlight aspects of the semiconductor and engineering fields.
Girls Going Tech is a unique model that blends STEM activities with mentorship to inspire female, nonbinary or gender-fluid middle school students to pursue tech careers.
The job shadow program allows high school students to get a glimpse of a typical day at Micron to show the skills and attributes are needed for careers in technology.
Just as we have many programs for students, we also work with educators and administrators on training opportunities and tools so they can excite their classes about STEM.
Building relationships with higher education is a collaboration between the Micron Foundation and Government Affairs, DEI, Talent Acquisition and various technical and business teams. The Micron Foundation partners with universities and colleges to grow diverse and robust engineering pathways through outreach to and philanthropy for students and educators in global communities.
We empower all Micron team members to strengthen their communities through our giving and volunteerism programs, extending the impact of our company to be a catalyst for the greater good in and around our Micron sites.
The Micron Foundation's primary focus areas are to provide equitable opportunities for underrepresented populations, enrich our communities and increase access to STEM education to create lasting social impact. These priorities are discussed throughout our homepage.
The Micron Foundation supports a range of eligible nongovernmental, nonprofit and academic organizations. Eligibility requirements vary by funding opportunity and must align with our primary giving areas.
