Community Giving

Improving the quality of life for people in the region
The Laboratory organized four blood drives with 104 donors giving 129 units of blood, enough to save 387 lives.

Laboratory employees are committed to community service, and work to improve the quality of life for people in the region through giving their time, talent and money to STEM projects and other nonprofit activities that benefit the region.

Employees donated:

  • $2.43M to nonprofit organizations in the 2020 employee giving campaign, with $2M of that staying in the region
  • $360,000 to the Los Alamos Employees Scholarship Fund to provide scholarships for students from Northern New Mexico
  • 2361 Holiday gifts kits via nonprofits and social service agencies across Northern New Mexico for children, senior citizens and people facing homelessness 
  • 2,200 backpacks and supplies to the Back to School Drive (netting more than double the expected goal).

The Laboratory hosted an online Community Conversation event for more than 60 regional nonprofit leaders, providing an opportunity for knowledge-sharing and expert seminars on adapting to operating during the pandemic.
