About the Motorola Solutions Foundation

The Motorola Solutions Foundation is the charitable and philanthropic arm of Motorola Solutions, originally founded in 1953. With employees located around the globe, Motorola Solutions seeks to benefit the communities where it operates. The company achieves this by making strategic grants, forging strong community partnerships and fostering innovation. 

Awarding over $9 million in grants in 2017, which supported more than 3 million students and first responders affiliated with about 260 organizations in 37 countries, our funding and involvement goes beyond helping those in law enforcement. The foundation also supports organizations that represent veterans, professional and volunteer fire service personnel, EMS professionals and disaster response professionals. In particular, the foundation focuses on:

  • Education – Supporting programs that advance science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education, preparing our next generation of innovators

  • Public safety – Making our communities safer by using our leadership in public safety innovation to provide resources to first responders and the communities they serve

  • Disaster relief – Partnering with humanitarian organizations to provide relief to disaster victims and providing vital support to emergency workers who are at the front lines of disaster relief

  • Employee giving – Providing our employees with matching programs in the United States and globally

90th Anniversary Celebration

As part of Motorola Solutions 90th anniversary celebration, the Motorola Solutions Foundation is partnering with the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) to support their efforts as the largest humanitarian organization. The IFRC’s work promotes humanitarian values, disaster response, disaster preparedness, and health and community care. 

Beginning August 31, the Motorola Solutions and Motorola Solutions Foundation social media channels will share a series of moments that matter from the company's 90 years of innovation and philanthropy until September 30 using the global-spanning #90YearsOfMomentum hashtag. 

For each engagement (like, comment, reply, video view, retweet, or share) on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and Instagram, the Foundation will donate $1 USD, up to $10,000 USD total, to the IFRC. 

Disclaimer: Motorola Solutions Foundation will donate One USD ($1.00) to the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies when, as tabulated by Motorola Solutions Foundation and based solely on public-facing occurrences of moments that matter engagements (like, share, comment), are used on social media channels, including but not limited to: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, WeChat, and LinkedIn. This program will begin on Friday, August 31, 2019 at 9:30 am CST and conclude at midnight on Sunday, September 30, 2019. The organization will receive up to Ten Thousand USD ($10,000.00), based on the total number of post engagements during the stated program interval.
