A Culture of Philanthropy
Following the spirit of the “Starfish” parable, Mitsubishi Electric U.S. companies are committed to improving society by making a difference in peoples’ lives. Today, we are proud to support this commitment through the following organizations and groups.
Established in 1998, the Mitsubishi HOPE Team is an employee run philanthropy group that provides volunteer time and financial support to a variety of non-profit organizations in the community. We have worked with a variety of national organizations including Special Olympics, Children’s Hospital of Orange County, American Cancer Society, March of Dimes and the Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation.
Currently, we are focusing on local community organizations and schools, and are honored to be offering volunteer time and funding for many of their projects.
- Intervention Center for Early Childhood
- Blind Children’s Learning Center
- Dayle McIntosh Center for Independent Living
- Canyon Hills School
- Saddleback Valley Unified School District
With the support of our employees and vendors, we’ve raised over $100,000 for these organizations and spent close to 2,000 hours volunteering our time.
Founded by the HOPE Team in 2000, our annual Hallway Golf Tournament is a highly-anticipated national event played at nine other Mitsubishi locations throughout the United States. Featuring three full days of competitive golf at our headquarters office, it is a fun and exciting fundraiser for our employees, vendors and partners.

We are also fortunate to have the support of the Mitsubishi Electric America Foundation – www.meaf.org. Located in Arlington, VA, the Foundation is committed to helping young people with disabilities to maximize their potential and participation in society. The Foundation provides national grants to projects and organizations throughout the United States, focusing on the areas where our company facilities are located.
The Foundation also supports charitable giving by Mitsubishi Electric U.S. employees, and encourages them to contribute their time and talent to strengthen their local communities. Through matching grants and gifts, employees can collectively or individually contribute to organizations within the Foundation’s mission.
