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

This year, more than $1 million in grants have been awarded to 102 nonprofits in New Mexico and California that improve our local communities by increasing family stability and supporting educational success.

“Sandia’s corporate contributions represent a commitment in the communities where we work and live, with the goal of making an impact on the programs, the people and the children who receive services from these outstanding nonprofits,” community relations specialist Roberta Rivera said.
