More than 80 years ago, Texas Instruments’ founders decided that the company’s worth was based not only on the strength of its balance sheet, but also on its contributions to society. This philosophy is still evident today in our ongoing efforts to improve education and the quality of life for our neighbors, communities and employees.

To make a positive impact in the locations where we operate, TI donates resources for education, arts and culture, and community investment to enhance its ability to innovate and improve the quality of life in locations where the company operates.
We provide monetary support and leadership through:
- Texas Instruments corporate giving. We fund site-based grants benefiting local communities (primarily in the U.S. and in some international locations) based on recommendations from local employees and strategic fit. Corporate giving includes direct TI contributions and grants from the TI Community Fund, a donor-advised fund through Silicon Valley Community Foundation.
