Supporting great causes here on Earth
For Rocket Lab, opening up access to space is one way we can improve life on Earth. Directly supporting community programs and organizations to deliver positive social, educational, and environment impacts on the ground is the other.
Through our Rocket Lab Community Grants we fund and support causes that align with our values; encourage education and careers in science, technology, engineering, and maths (STEM); and contribute to thriving communities where we live and launch.
