PTC Launches Charitable Giving Foundation
PTC Builds on Long History of Philanthropy with Foundation Establishment
“The establishment of this foundation is an extension of PTC’s commitment to social responsibility and embodies the values and passion of our employees,” said
- STEM and Education: Investing in future generations of workers, leaders, and innovators is a natural fit for PTC, which has already partnered with organizations such as FIRST, Girls Who Code, and the
Boston Museum of Science. As a long-time FIRST strategic partner, PTC is inspiring the next generation of engineers and innovators through fiscal, product, and service donations to FIRST Robotics Competitionteams.
- Community: PTC has a long-standing history of giving back to communities in which employees work through corporate grants and disaster relief funding.
The PTC Foundationwill continue to identify causes with shared goals. Organizations that PTC has supported in the past include City Year Boston, PanMass Challenge, and the American Red Cross. Through its partnership with City Year Boston, PTC sponsors a team of City Year Corps Members who commit to one year of national service by providing educational support and mentoring to students in the Boston Public School System.
- Employee Giving: Employees are also encouraged to support the organizations they are passionate about, whether by donating their time using the two volunteer days off each year, participating in a variety of philanthropic activities during PTC’s annual Week of Caring, or through personal donations to non-profit organizations in addition to a company-matched donation.
"It is our inherent role as a leading technology company to put innovation to work for good,” said
