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.
As the COVID-19 pandemic surged through our communities, so too did the number of families needing extra help to pay bills and put food on the table. Hardworking families across America have felt, and continue to feel, this unprecedented financial squeeze, many of whom have turned to food banks for the first time to ensure their families are fed.
The Bionetics Charitable Trust saw the need, and to date has donated over $13,000 to multiple local food banks, helping to ensure their ability to meet this demand and keep food on the tables of our friends and families. We are proud to be a force for good in our community, particularly in these challenging times, and continue to identify and fund initiatives to help improve the quality of life for those in need. We will get through this, together!
