  • “I Give Because…” theme focuses on unique role Lab plays in local communities

Nearly $2 million has been pledged by Los Alamos National Laboratory employees to United Way and other eligible nonprofit programs during the Laboratory’s 2014 Employee Giving Campaign.

Los Alamos National Security, LLC, which manages and operates the Laboratory for the National Nuclear Security Administration, plans to prorate its $1 million match among the selected nonprofit organizations, bringing the total donation to nearly $3 million.

“I give because I am a member of the Northern New Mexico community,” said Terry Wallace, Los Alamos’ principal associate director for Global Security and this year’s campaign champion. “I want to thank the Los Alamos National Laboratory staff for their participation in the Lab’s giving campaign.

Nearly $2 million was pledged to the various community charities. Given the turmoil of the potential Lab shut down, I am impressed that our employees wanted to ‘give because’ they care for their friends and neighbors.”

Laboratory employee contributions will fund a wide range of programs offered by eligible nonprofit organizations.
