Corporate Giving Policy

Brain Corp is committed to strengthening the communities where we do business, where we have customers, and where our valued employees live. We support many local and regional charitable and civic organizations, both in cash and in-kind contributions. We are committed to building ties within our communities with a specific focus on children, STEM education and robotics.

In addition, we make every effort to assist in programs and resources that support and enrich the families of our employees while having a meaningful, direct, and sustainable social benefit and align with our business priorities. If you have a philanthropic organization and desire to be considered for a donation, we ask that you first review the guidelines below.

Tax exempt status

Our policy is to focus our support on registered non-profit, non-governmental organizations, civic, and or educational organizations with proof of Section 501(c)(3) or 501(c)(6) tax exempt status under the Internal Revenue Code.
