Funding for AccessSTEM CAREERS was provided by the Mitsubishi Electric America Foundation (MEAF), the corporate foundation of the Mitsubishi Electric group companies in the United States. MEAF works to make Changes for the Better in society by investing in innovative strategies to empower youth with disabilities to lead productive lives. Since its inception, MEAF and Mitsubishi Electric Employee Volunteers have invested $14 million and more than 40,000 volunteer hours in U.S. based nonprofit organizations. The Foundation has provided $7.6 million in National Grants that promote the full inclusion of youth with disabilities in society. MEAF has also given nearly $3 million in Matching Grants and Starfish Matches, doubling the $3 million in charitable contributions of cash, products and volunteer time donated by Mitsubishi Electric US companies and their employees.
