In 1987, the Officers and Directors of the Bionetics Corporation created a Charitable Trust. The intention was to support IRS qualified charitable organizations that are deemed appropriate by the Charitable Trust Committee as well as support educational, charitable, literary or scientific organizations.
Each year, The Bionetics Corporation distributes tens of thousands of dollars to a number of organizations such as the American Cancer Society, Make a Wish Foundation, Feed America, Operation Smile, Children’s Hospital of the Kings Daughter’s, Boys and Girls Club of America, Big Brothers/Big Sisters Program, Hole in the Wall Camps, American Diabetes Association, The American Red Cross, Fisher House, St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital, the Foodbank, just to name a few. The Corporation prefers to support organizations where employees, their families and project location communities have a direct involvement.
