The Maxar Better World Foundation has announced five new grants, totaling $125,000, to support veterans and active-duty military and their families. These grants will go toward programs addressing career readiness, mental health support, and enriching the lives of children of wounded, ill or fallen military service members.

“These grants underscore Maxar’s commitment to those who’ve served and who continue to serve their country. Since 2022, we have awarded more than $300,000 in grants to organizations that do important work in this community,” said Liz Andora, Maxar Better World Foundation Chairwoman and Maxar’s Chief People Officer. “We are grateful that so many veterans have chosen to work at Maxar—11 percent of our team—and that many of our employees are part of a military family. We believe in the mission of these organizations and recognize the value they bring to these individuals.”

The five organizations receiving grants from the foundation include:

Camp Corral: Camp Corral provides camp, advocacy and enrichment programs to transform the lives of children of wounded, ill and fallen military heroes. The organization has served more than 30,000 children to date, helping build peer connections and support systems, enhance coping skills and confidence, and provide opportunities to decompress and recharge. Camp Corral received a $25,000 grant to cover summer camp fees and gear expenses.

FourBlock: FourBlock supports returning service members in their transition from military service to meaningful civilian careers. Their flagship Career Readiness program is taught by corporate executives in major cities across the U.S. and serves more than 600 transitioning veterans annually. FourBlock received a $25,000 grant to support the Denver and Colorado Springs Career Readiness program.

Project Sanctuary: Focused on addressing mental health and helping military families heal, Project Sanctuary hosts evidence-based therapeutic retreats and holistic support programs for active duty and veteran military families that address communication skills, conflict resolution, financial literacy and living with post-traumatic stress disorder. Their mission is to restore hope and empower families to recover and thrive. Project Sanctuary received a $25,000 grant to support 23 retreats across Colorado, Texas, Washington, Maryland and Georgia.

Team Rubicon: Team Rubicon, also a Maxar Purpose Partner, is a veteran-led organization that pairs military veterans with first responders, medical professionals and technology solutions to help communities prepare for, respond to and recover from natural disasters and humanitarian crises. Team Rubicon received a $25,000 grant to support its Ready Reserve Fund.

Salute Colorado: Salute Colorado supports veterans in their transition from military service through a continuous program of education, mentorship and other resources. Salute Colorado received a $25,000 grant to support its Valor Bridge Program, which works with newly transitioning service members with service records of more than 10 years. The program will engage 24 veterans across two cohorts through Spring 2024.

Since 2020, the Maxar Better World Foundation has supported organizations that improve the lives of individuals, embrace diversity and provide tools and opportunities needed to thrive. The foundation focuses its grantmaking around three core areas: advancing STEM education for underserved and diverse populations, helping veterans and active-duty military and their families, and supporting global disaster preparedness and relief.
