Enriching our communities

The heart of Micron Gives lies at the intersection of our philanthropy, programs and people.

We understand that people cannot succeed if their basic needs are not met and if systemic barriers to their success exist.

That’s why we provide opportunities for upward mobility through local community empowerment programs.

Investing in community ecosystems

We understand the importance of investing in underrepresented and historically marginalized groups to drive social equity. Across our giving portfolio, we prioritize organizations that focus on increasing opportunities for these populations.

For example, we support organizations that provide job skills training and critical wrap-around services like housing and childcare. And we try to be responsive to local and global emergencies by addressing local community needs and promoting goodwill efforts.
