As a world leader in the information technology industry, Toshiba America Electronic Components (TAEC) is committed to serving as a model for local companies to take an active role in our community. Through partnership programs, Toshiba can be counted upon to work with corporations to accept the challenge of rounding out the opportunities for all residents.
Whether through Toshiba employees voluntarily pitching in or by financial commitment, TAEC supports a variety of community-oriented enterprises. Toshiba management encourages employee participation in local community-oriented causes by supporting employees who volunteer. These individuals volunteer on their own time and choose those programs and projects that they wish to support. TAEC strengthens these programs and projects by contributing financial donations to these non-profit groups with whom employees volunteer.
TAEC makes unique contributions with both funds and people to various organizations. These contributions enhance opportunities for local schools to expand their interest in math, science and technology. Beyond its participation with local programs, the Toshiba America Foundation is another rich resource which bolsters mathematics and science education projects in grades 7-12.
TAEC supports the Toshiba/NSTA ExploraVision Awards - a science competition for grades K-12 for students of all skill and ability levels across the US and Canada. The purpose of this competition (the largest science competition in the US) is to encourage students to combine their imaginations with the tools of science and technology to create and explore a vision of the future.
Toshiba America Foundation (TAF) is a non-profit grant-making organization dedicated to supporting science and mathematics education in the United States. The Foundation supports quality science and math education by providing funds for projects designed by teachers to enhance instruction for students in grades K-12.
