As part of our corporate values and culture, we at TowerJazz aim to enrich and improve not only individuals’ lives, but society as a whole, and we believe corporate social responsibility is imperative to the Company’s true success.
TowerJazz supports a wide range of health, education, social and community activities that affect and involve its employees and the community’s well-being by promoting education, donating goods and funding programs/services. We are pleased to share below some of the most recent worldwide activities.
Headquarters – Migdal Haemek, Israel
As part of TowerJazz’s community outreach program, we donate funds to the GAIA (Global Awerness Investigation and Action) project, an international environmental research project involving a diverse population of middle and high school students as scientific and policy developers.
We have supported with key scientist mentoring and direct funding for the past 7 years, with 15 plus schools schools including Jewish, Arab, and Circassian in Israel, and schools in Greece, Czech Republic, Belgium, and USA active in the program.
The employees at our HQ (MH) facilities are supporting youth clubs for kids who need help with homework or need some mental support. This program has been in effect for the last eight years with a team of around 25 volunteers that participate in this activity once a week.
In addition, TowerJazz MH employee volunteers are participating for the fifth year in a project we call “English Learning by Volunteers.” Every week, 10 employees visit a nearby high school where they work 1:1 with 10th grade students teaching them English. During one-hour sessions, they have conversations, read short articles from magazines, listen to music, solve crosswords, surf the internet, and all are done – in English. It’s a fun and interactive way to teach and learn.
This project is part of a larger professional program, called ‘English – Tool for life’ conducted by the partnership of Michigan’s Jewish community and our region in Israel. The main goal is to improve students’ conversation skills and expand their vocabulary which will eventually increase their confidence in speaking English fluently. Another goal is exposing the students to the Hi-tech world, and to increase their motivation of working hard in order to succeed in life. During the year, a few events take place including field trips to TowerJazz and workshops for students to strengthen their team work.
Newport Beach, CA Facility
The TowerJazz NPB facility was chosen by the Fab Owners Association (FOA) to host the Q4 meeting. The two-day event included representatives from 18 device manufacturing companies. During the first day, the FOA president donated $1000 for a charity of our choice as a token of appreciation for hosting the event.
As a result, we were pleased to present a check to Working Wardrobes – an organization that assists survivors of domestic violence and other adults trying to overcome challenges and re-enter the workforce – through life skills education, career counseling and providing suitable attire. TowerJazz’s donation will help the organization with one of its current initiatives, aiding veterans who recently got out of the service and are looking to enter, or go back to the workforce.
In addition, our NPB employee volunteers donated their time participating in various activities at the Working Wardrobes center such as sorting, boxing and organizing clothes or helping with other activities to prepare those in need for workforce readiness which can be a life changing experience.
In the spirit of the holiday season, TowerJazz NPB employees participated in a Corporate Social Responsibility Day at the Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County. Employees volunteered to help with various activities such as sorting and boxing perishables and helping with other activities at the center
San Antonio, Texas Facility
Our employees in San Antonio contributed to the community by supporting a Food Bank event.
They packed over 19,000 lbs. of food which translates to over 15,000 meals for people in the area who are in dire need of food for their families.
TowerJazz Texas also purchased school supplies and filled 250 backpacks for needy children in the community.
