In 2018, ON Semiconductor donated over $2 million globally to support health, human services, education, disaster relief and environmental causes. Of that total, we have invested close to $1 million in Arizona through workplace giving (such as matching donations and sponsorships). 

To increase our impact on communities, we launched a formal employee volunteer program in 2017 so that all of our employees in North America (U.S. and Canada) have one day per year to volunteer at an organization of their liking during company time.
