Boeing’s competitive grant-making process looks first at a project’s or program’s expected outcomes, and next for demonstrations of what they believe are the hallmarks of good community investments. Overall, grant requests throughout the enterprise are evaluated on:
- Alignment with one or more of Bosing’s five focus areas and corresponding objectives
- Alignment with company values and core competencies
- Clearly defined expected outcomes, relative to community needs, that are measurable, scalable, and have a sustainable impact on the community beyond the period of the company’s involvement
- The extent to which the project or program demonstrates innovation, collaboration, leadership and diversity
- The organization’s financial viability, programmatic strength, and legal compliance.
Boeing’s grantmaking focuses on five key areas: Education (Early Learning and Primary/Secondary), Environment, Health and Human Services, Arts and Culture, and Civic Engagement. These objectives are prioritized locally by Boeing’s site representatives according to an assessment of community needs.
