Austin-area community partners at the Friend-chip event on Sept. 25, 2023.
In 2023, Samsung Austin Semiconductor invested $1.7 million into 32 community organizations serving Austin, Manor and Travis County.
The organizations range from environmental to two large school districts and higher education.
“When you talk about shaping future generations, our school districts are very important to that,” Michele Glaze, Samsung Austin Semiconductor director of communications and community affairs, said at the Austin-area event. “As part of our grant, Manor Independent School District hired a licensed psychiatrist to help the teachers. With the Austin Ed Fund, we’re helping with innovation grants for teachers.”
Samsung Austin Semiconductor believes being a good corporate citizen is about co-prosperity. We want to make sure the communities in which we call home, grow and thrive along with us.
“We look forward to a lot more years in Austin and continuing to grow these partnerships,” Kelly Ballard, Samsung Austin Semiconductor community affairs manager, said. “We are expanding in Taylor, but our facility in Austin is here, we will continue to be here and we will continue to be the same community partner as we have been for 27 years.”
Through our partnerships this year, we have been able to impact the lives of more than 1.5 million people; 30% of whom are K-12 students.
