Boeing is supporting the cause with the thirty million dollar investment. A spokesperson of the company has also claimed the company distributed fifty million dollar in grants for 2018. The grants were used for education into different careers for veterans; including science, technology, engineering and math. The company has also worked with local charities such as NPower, which is expected to launch fifteen thousand digital careers by 2022, and the American Airlines Skyball. The American Airlines Skyball is one of the oldest military support organizations in the United States that hosts a fundraising event every year. Last year alone the company raised $3.1 million.
