TE Connectivity - Coronavirus (COVID-19) Response

TE Connectivity and the TE Connectivity Foundation have donated more than $1 million to organizations supporting the fight against COVID-19.

The TE Foundation approved a $1 million emergency grant to Global Impact, a philanthropic partner across the private, nonprofit and public sectors, to fund diagnostics, therapeutics and vaccines vital in managing the global pandemic.

Specifically, the TE Foundation has requested the funds be distributed among the following organizations:

  • Direct Relief, to supply medical personnel around the world with personal protective equipment (PPE) and other necessities
  • Americares, to mobilize medical personnel for overwhelmed health facilities around the world
  • Gates Philanthropy Partners' Therapeutics Accelerator, to speed up the identification and production of treatments for COVID-19

Separately from the foundation, TE Connectivity has committed to making a series of donations to charities that will have the biggest impact on the communities in which the company operates.

TE has donated $100,000 to Direct Relief, as well as $75,000 to the Shanghai Charity Federation to purchase PPE. Additionally, TE will double the charitable match it offers to its U.S. employees to 200% when they donate to specific medical facilities near major TE locations nationwide.
