Boeing recently announced an additional grant award of $350,000 to “A Better Chance” (ABC) a nonprofit organization working to increase the number of well-educated young minorities in the United States. Grant dollars will help fund the College Preparatory Schools Program (CPSP) and Alumni Relations program.


“This additional investment, along with our previously announced commitment, will help lift up our young people and in turn improve our local communities,” said Tim Keating, executive vice president of Government Operations at Boeing. “Our relationship with ABC is stronger than ever, and we hope this show of support enables the organization to further its impact, bringing educational equity to children across the county.”

Boeing’s contribution will support programs that increase the number of minority students placed into high-performing college preparatory schools, enabling them to pursue positions of responsibility and leadership in American society. ABC participants have a 99 percent high school graduation rate and 96 percent college graduation rate.

Underscoring the strong partnership, ABC recently awarded former Boeing Chairman, President and CEO Jim McNerney with its Chairman’s Award for his commitment to education and education equity for underrepresented youth.
