JNFF Grant Process
JNFF targets grants related to education and lifelong learning. The focus is on programs that foster technical understanding and increasing levels of job preparedness.
JNFF works closely with SVCF, local Juniper Networks offices, and philanthropic organizations in our communities to identify opportunities where our support can make a difference. JNFF proactively seeks out partnerships and works exclusively with SVCF who handles all grant logistics.
In addition to the Foundation, Juniper Networks makes periodic donations to charitable organizations around the world. We have donated networking equipment to create a world-class research laboratory at Tsinghua University in Beijing, China. Juniper Networks has also worked with the Red Cross to help victims of the 2004 South Asian tsunami and Hurricane Katrina in 2005. We have also worked with the Hidaya Foundation to help victims of the 2005 earthquake in Kashmir and Pakistan.
Juniper Networks encourages our employees to participate in volunteer activities that make a positive impact on the community. We partner with a variety of organizations on activities and events. In addition to corporate volunteer projects, employees volunteer their time in local schools, community events and nonprofit organizations.
