The Motorola Solutions Foundation, the charitable arm of Motorola Solutions, announced more than $9.5 million in grant funding this year to charitable organizations around the world. The grants will impact more than 2 million students, first responders, teachers, veterans and community members in more than 38 countries, with a focus on nonprofit organizations that provide education in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), as well as public safety.

“As a global company with a 90-year heritage of innovation to advance mission-critical communications, the foundation is delighted to partner with nonprofits that are innovative in their own right,” said Matt Blakely, executive director of the Motorola Solutions Foundation. “We are proud to support the work of so many organizations that are making a unique contribution to advance opportunities in their communities, but especially for those that help women, underrepresented groups, people with disabilities and veterans.”

This year’s grants were awarded based on input from more than 300 Motorola Solutions employees worldwide who volunteered to be grant reviewers.

Examples of 2018 grant recipients include Special Olympics, which supports first responders through education and hands-on training on how to communicate with and respond to people with intellectual disabilities. The Penang Science Cluster educates more than 3,000 students and 300 teachers from 75 schools on design thinking process and coding and electronics, and allows them to apply their learning to develop a mobile application that solves a problem in a local school. University College London trains university students to develop a mobile application to support 150 teachers and students in rural Philippines during natural disasters, such as earthquakes and floods.

So Motorola has $95 million to donate to charity. But you can't buy a more expensive public-safety radio.
