Schneider Electric Pacific Foundation announces multi-year agreements with charitable partners

Schneider Electric has named Beacon Foundation, ATSIMA, and Raise Foundation as its Foundation’s charitable partners.

Schneider Electric has announced the next round of its Pacific Foundation’s charitable partners.

Beacon Foundation, Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Mathematics Alliance (ATSIMA), and Raise Foundation will each receive a portion of AUD $800k.  All partners have been chosen for their focus on education and social and professional integration.

Tam Johnston, Head of Social Impact, Schneider Electric, said:

“At Schneider Electric, we are partnering with charities that benefit underserved youth across the Pacific Zone. We are excited to announce our partnerships with these organisations that are making such a positive impact to this segment of the community,”

In addition to receiving necessary funding, Schneider Electric will support the chosen charitable organisations to support their vital work: 

Beacon Foundation: This foundation delivers career readiness programs across Australia to students in years 7-12, supporting them to have the aspiration, motivation, and ability to transition them to meaningful employment pathways. Schneider Electric staff will join in panel discussions and mock employment interviews with youth, in addition to funding an additional 25 High Impact Work Readiness sessions each year through the Beacon Foundation.

ATSIMA: This First Nations-led organisation is committed to running STEM camps for First Nations students from Years 5-10. These camps have been designed to provide educational experiences and opportunities for participants to connect with Indigenous STEM professionals and cultural leaders, to inspire them towards STEM pathways. This partnership will allow 100 students to attend the camp each year.

Raise Foundation: This early intervention mentoring program trains and provides volunteers to support young people navigating life’s challenges in high schools. As part of the partnership, an additional 40 youths will be able to take part in the program. Additionally, 15 Schneider Electric employees will spend two hours per week as Raise mentors this year. 

All charitable partners announced in 2023 will receive funding and support from the Schneider Electric Pacific Foundation until the end of 2025.
