Battelle is a nonprofit charitable trust that gives $8 million to $11 million annually to philanthropic organizations.
We are strategic with our donations and target the majority of funds to STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) education initiatives that can make the greatest impact. We also invest in civic and community causes that are important to the communities where we live and work.
Columbus, Ohio has a special place in our company’s heart – it’s where we were founded and where our headquarters remain today – so two-thirds of our total annual giving remain in Central Ohio.
How We Give
Education – Funding for education programming aligned to our strategic education objectives is made available through Battelle’s STEM Grant Program.
Civic & Community – Funding proposals for civic and community causes are reviewed by Battelle’s philanthropy employees and a Charitable Distribution Review Committee. We consider industry-standard evaluation metrics, including the financial health of the organization and community need. The application period is currently closed.
Charitable Event Sponsorship – Due to the large number of fundraising events, Battelle chooses to sponsor only a small number of carefully selected charitable events throughout the year.
