As National Nonprofit Day approaches on Aug. 17, Sandia recognizes organizations that make a major impact in their communities. National Technology and Engineering Solutions of Sandia LLC, on behalf of Sandia, is proud to support nonprofit organizations that focus on families and education as part of its corporate contributions program.

In 2022, more than $1 million in grants have been awarded to 85 nonprofits in New Mexico and California that improve lives in our local communities by increasing family stability and improving educational success.

Community relations specialist Michelle Walker-Wade helps award grants to agencies that serve the community near Sandia/California.

“The use of corporate dollars and employee engagement show support for various causes in our community and demonstrates a sense of caring and togetherness,” Michelle said. “When we support nonprofit organizations, it demonstrates to CEOs and board members that Sandia values their investment in the community and encourages them to keep doing great work.”
