Corporate Membership

Raytheon is Founding Member of Corporate Giving Club

Written by: developer

Space Foundation Platinum Corporate Member Raytheon Company is the first to join the Space Foundation’s new Corporate Giving Club, also at the Platinum level. Raytheon’s four-year commitment will make possible a new permanent exhibit at the Space Foundation Discovery Center, and will bring its premier traveling exhibit MathAlive! to the Discovery Center, opening in January 2016. 

Raytheon Company, with 2014 sales of $23 billion and 61,000 employees worldwide, is a technology and innovation leader specializing in defense, security and civil markets throughout the world. With a history of innovation spanning 93 years, Raytheon provides state-of-the-art electronics, mission systems integration and other capabilities in the areas of sensing; effects; and command, control, communications and intelligence systems, as well as cyber security and a broad range of mission support services. Raytheon is headquartered in Waltham, Mass. 

The first Bronze level member of the Corporate Giving Club is ADD STAFF, Inc., a Colorado Springs staffing firm that identifies, qualifies, evaluates and matches appropriately skilled candidates to their client organization needs.

Because both companies have joined in the inaugural year of the Corporate Giving Club, they will receive permanent recognition at the Space Foundation Discovery Center as Charter Members. Thank you Raytheon and ADD STAFF!
