Micron’s COVID-19 Giving

+

Micron’s corporate vision extends to the communities where our team members live and work — working to improve them through our philanthropy and people. Our primary focuses include supporting basic human needs.

In response to the pandemic, we are applying the full strength and resources of Micron’s business to support our communities worldwide. We have committed $10 million through the Micron Foundation to assist global efforts to spur economic recovery and provide much-needed community resources for food banks, health facilities, school meal programs and online learning resources.

Micron team members are extraordinarily generous in donating both their time and their money. To address the great need, Micron is double-matching team member donations to charities assisting our local communities in their fight against COVID-19.
