We are a proud supporter of the United Way, helping us fund a broad range of non-profit organizations within the local communities of our U.S. operations. Combined with United Technologies, millions of dollars have supported charitable organizations across the United States.
Our employees generously volunteer their time and energy to make our local communities better places. They participate in many local projects and community efforts such as serving meals in homeless shelters, building houses for Habitat for Humanity, fundraising for charities, acting as Big Brothers and Big Sisters and sponsoring annual food and clothing drives. To support and encourage our employees' community efforts, Pratt & Whitney proudly offers the following employee programs:
Volunteer Grant Program
Regular, full-time employees may apply for a $250 grant for non-profit organizations to which they volunteer.

Community Power Grant Program
A team of Pratt & Whitney volunteers, consisting of 5 to 15 people, chooses a local educational institution or non-profit human services organization in need of support. The Pratt & Whitney team and the non-profit partner then select a project that furthers the goals of the organization. Each team member must work on the project for a minimum of 15 hours over a two to six month period. Upon completion of the project, the partner organization receives a $2,500 grant from Pratt & Whitney.
Green Power Grant
A Pratt & Whitney volunteer team consisting of a minimum of three employees, partners with a non-profit organization whose primary focus is on the environment. The team works on a project which will enhance, protect or preserve the environment or teach others the value of doing so. The Pratt & Whitney volunteers each work a minimum of three hours on the project. When the project is completed, the partner organization will receive a $500 to $5,000 grant from Pratt & Whitney.
