Corporate Social Responsibility

Maxar takes its corporate social responsibilities seriously and has a long history of supporting and giving to nonprofit organizations. We focus our time, resources and technology on supporting communities through outreach, volunteerism, data philanthropy and the Maxar Better World Foundation.

Community outreach and volunteerism is deeply engrained in our company culture. Maxar team members are encouraged to organize and participate in activities that uplift the communities where Maxar has a footprint. Additionally, our team members are active through community service projects, mentorship programs, charitable drives and nonprofit board service.

We use our core competencies of satellite data and analytics to help a wide variety of causes that serve a public good. Maxar provides satellite imagery in the form of in-kind donations through multiple channels to leverage technology for social good and global transparency, including our News Bureau, Open Data Program and Purpose Partner Program.

Maxar Better World Foundation

The Maxar Better World Foundation supports organizations that improve the lives of individuals, embrace their diversity and provide them with the tools and opportunities needed to thrive. Since its launch in 2020, the Foundation has focused on advancing STEM education for underserved and diverse populations, helping veterans and active-duty military and their families, and supporting global disaster preparedness and relief.

The Foundation is governed by a Board of Directors supported by a nongoverning Advisory Committee and Grantmaking Committee that provide guidance and perspective regarding the Foundation and its activities. Additionally, the Foundation’s Finance Committee assists with monitoring and overseeing the financial policies, goals and budgets that support the mission of the Foundation. We maintain a Maxar Foundation Conflict of Interest Policy and Investment Policy that is reviewed annually.
