Counting Down the Top 40 Foundation Grants of All Time #25: EGR Robotics Program

The EGR Robotics program kicks off the top 25 of our top 40 grants of all time. 

When the Foundation started sponsoring the program in 2016, high school robotics was pretty new to west Michigan. We helped the program get started, built onto it with a middle school robotics program and FIRST Lego League at the elementary schools, and the result is pretty awesome. High school robotics is fun, educational, exciting, social, and the students who participate in it absolutely love it.

The Foundation is proud to be an “Atomic Level” sponsor of EGR Robotics Team 5980. You can learn more–a lot more–on the team’s website,

Thank you, Foundation donors, for making this possible. You can help support our mission of investing in educational enhancements for all our students on our Donate page.
