The Westinghouse Electric Company Charitable Giving Program serves as the principal funding entity for the company's social investments. The Program makes charitable contributions to nonprofit organizations in Southwestern Pennsylvania and other communities throughout the United States where Westinghouse has a presence.
Westinghouse's preference of support is for educational programs that emphasize math, science and technology. However, consideration will also be given to civic & social, and health & welfare programs, as described below.
- Education - Elementary, secondary and high school educational programs that emphasize math and science, although consideration will be given to other relevant, non-fine arts programs.
- Civic and Social - Grants in this category support programs encouraging community economic development, environmental quality and preservation, and public safety.
- Health and Welfare - Health and welfare grants will support initiatives that improve the overall quality of life in the communities.
