The POWER Foundation, the nonprofit arm of Idaho-based POWER Engineers Inc., will be donating $750,000 over the next five years to support underserved students in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) fields. Specifically, the foundation plans to donate $15,000 in 10 communities per year to schools, programs, or organizations that enable students from traditionally underrepresented groups to pursue their passion for STEM. Employees from each office will select the grant recipients, starting with organizations in Hailey

“It’s a big effort, the biggest ever for the Foundation,” said Foundation board chair Jim Haynes. “We wanted to make a real, meaningful impact. Hopefully, our donations will help our industries become stronger and more inclusive as more students from all backgrounds pursue STEM education.”

The foundation said its goal is to select organizations that focus on support for underserved students from racial and ethnic minorities; students from low-income families; students with disabilities; female and non-binary students; LGBTQIA+ students; or other underserved students. Applications will also be reviewed by representatives from POWER’s DEI Committee.
