L3Harris Donates $930,000 to Non-Profits to Help with COVID Relief
Friday, October 16, 2020 | Comments

L3Harris Technologies provided 39 non-profit organizations across the U.S. with $930,000 in social impact grants as part of the company’s ongoing efforts to provide relief to communities adversely affected by COVID-19.

The L3Harris Foundation this month distributed grants in 19 states to organizations that applied for funds to address a wide range of needs, including the digital divide, food insecurity, veteran aid, mentorship for STEM students and economic opportunities for small businesses.

The grants are part of L3Harris’ $2 million commitment to support organizations involved in COVID-19 relief and recovery efforts around the world. The company has provided funds to COVID-19 response and recovery funds administered by local United Way agencies and the American Red Cross, and is providing a two-times match to employee-designated gifts to these and other organizations.

In addition, L3Harris has provided more than $450 million in accelerated payments to small business suppliers in 45 states to sustain the nation’s supply chain, and company employees have volunteered to provide respirators, free communications apps and STEM-oriented “Tech in 10” videos for students. Employees are also volunteering to assist organizations through the company’s L3Harris Investing for Tomorrow (LIFT) volunteer program, which supports these and other initiatives throughout the year.

“The pandemic has placed a tremendous strain on all facets of our society,” said L3Harris CEO William M. Brown. “The L3Harris social impact grants will help provide some relief to those most in need – especially students, parents, communities and small businesses in areas where our employees work and live.”
