About the Foundation
Inheriting a commitment to philanthropy from its parent company Hewlett-Packard, the Agilent Foundation's roots go back to the founding of Agilent in 1999.
As a global company, Agilent's objective is to be an economic, intellectual and social asset in the countries and communities in which it operates.
Agilent’s philanthropic efforts, through the Agilent Technologies Foundation, focus on university research grants that foster innovation and benefit the scientific community. The foundation also supports a range of pre-university-level science education programs aimed at helping students develop the critical thinking skills essential for tomorrow’s jobs.
In addition, the foundation’s match of employee giving strengthens a broad range of nonprofit programs in communities where Agilent has a presence.

Foundation grants funds aim to reach the greatest number of students in order to have the widest possible influence in helping them develop the creativity and critical thinking skills essential for tomorrow’s jobs.
Every year, Agilent employees donate thousands of volunteer hours in support of the foundation's focus on improving science education. In addition, the foundation matches employee giving dollar-for-dollar to a wide range of nonprofit organizations.
