Textron works diligently to build a better worldwide community and to be a responsible corporate citizen. Through active volunteerism and philanthropic giving, we work alongside nonprofit organizations that address needs within our local communities.
In 2017, Textron, including its business units and the Textron Charitable Trust, gave more than $6.8 million to support the work these organizations do to better our communities.

9% increase over 2016
Textron’s charitable giving comes from two sources: Textron Inc., including its business units, and the Textron Charitable Trust.
Our direct charitable giving, which comprised more than half of our total 2017 charitable giving of $6.8 million, was made in the form of grants, event sponsorships and general funding, and is largely focused in two areas: Workforce Development & Education and Healthy Families/Vibrant Communities. Within these areas of focus, we support non-profit organizations that address issues related to workforce development, education, arts and culture, community revitalization and health and human services programs in communities where Textron has a major business presence.
