Now, more than ever, we need to stay connected, especially as so many around the globe work to slow the spread of COVID-19 through social distancing. To help keep you connected to your community, Qualcomm continues to focus on delivering critical wireless technologies like 5G.
We’re committed to providing reliable connectivity solutions to maintain business continuity, especially in the critical areas of healthcare, small business support, and remote education—all while protecting the safety of our employees and customers.
We appreciate how well our employees have responded to this global challenge. To those working from home, thank you for staying focused and connected. To our onsite critical and support staff, thank you for respecting the new safety measures we have in place. Thanks to the remarkable efforts of our business, product, operations, engineering, and support groups, we’re able to maintain our commitments to our customers, partners, and shareholders while keeping everyone safe.
The impact of COVID-19 on small businesses is felt far and wide. In response, Qualcomm established the Small Business Accelerator Program. Designed to help small businesses transition to a mobile-first remote work environment, this program will provide collaboration tools that enable remote teamwork and productivity through this crisis and beyond.
Qualcomm has a long history of philanthropic and community involvement. We continue to evaluate ways to scale that commitment at a time when so much help is needed. To support our global communities, we have donated to the following efforts, and we remain committed to providing monetary and in-kind donations throughout this crisis.
Community and Charitable Donations
The global pandemic has forced schools around the globe to move online. But millions of students lack broadband internet and the devices necessary to access their online schoolwork. These students now fall into the homework gap and are unable to continue their education. Qualcomm supports emergency federal funding to help keep all students on track with connectivity and devices.
