The Foundation was established in the summer of 2023 to allot grants to charitable organisations nominated by Smiths employees, which align with our purpose of improving our world through smarter engineering. Within that purpose, grants focus on three outcomes:
- Improving access to quality Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) education and skills for underrepresented groups
- Improving safety and connectedness within communities
- Improving the environmental sustainability of those communities
We are proud to take this step honouring and extending Smiths Group’s longstanding commitment to our many communities around the world. Strong communities benefit us all and at Smiths we recognise the practical importance and many rewards of giving back. The Smiths Group Foundation helps increase our impact, deliver on our purpose and create lasting value for all of our stakeholders.
We are delighted to have helped bring the Smiths Group Foundation to life. The commitment of Smiths Group employees and its leadership to generate impact in the communities where they are present has been clearly demonstrated in our work with them. We hope they set an example which is followed by many other global companies who can play an essential role in addressing the most pressing issues in society.
