National Instruments and its employees are committed to serving the communities in which they work and live by applying NI tools, services, and expertise to significant causes. Because NI is a technology leader, the cornerstone of its community engagement program is improving engineering and science education by making technology more accessible, inspirational, and fun for young people.

Refer to the NI corporate giving guidelines for information about the grant request process.

“Connecting to different issues with a multifaceted approach is the quickest way to see positive growth in our community. In manufacturing, giving back to our local community means monthly in-kind donation drives, quarterly paid volunteer time off, and supporting charities with financial gifts. I'm a big proponent of our employees giving back in ways that are most comfortable for them.”
