UCOR strives to be an active corporate partner in the communities where we conduct business and to contribute to the causes in which our workforce believe. Our philanthropy includes both financial donations and occasionally in-kind donations of technical expertise.
To effectively manage our giving program, we have established four focus areas, as follows:
- Children’s Advocacy: Under this area, we support organizations like the East Tennessee Children’s Hospital, Oak Ridge Children’s Museum, Second Harvest Food Bank, and more.
- Education and Workforce Development: In addition to the programs previously described, we support STEM education at all levels, including our annual mini-grants program that provides grants to area schools in nine East Tennessee counties. We also support the Tennessee Science Bowl and various robotics teams at area schools.
- Health and Wellness: UCOR’s workforce has long support the annual Butterfly Bash. We also support Methodist Medical Center, and United Way.
- Conservation and Preservation: Among other organizations, we support the Legacy Parks Foundation, the Clinch River Trail Alliance, and the Foothills Land Conservancy.
