Dedicated to supporting communities & organizations where we work & live
BGC Squared is a philanthropic program that aims to address earth science challenges sustainably using expertise, resources, and BGC volunteered time in partnership with local communities and organizations. The program supports not-for-profit, community-driven development, and environmental protection projects locally, near our project sites, and across the globe.
The program, founded in 2014, was driven by the passion shared by all BGC staff to leverage their expertise to support communities and organizations in need. Individual employees are the driving force behind projects with support from BGC resources to help achieve the various goals of the philanthropic programs. Our employees identify a need and use their areas of expertise to support the project work. The program continues to evolve as we harness the collective skills of BGC, expand our geographic reach, and grow our areas of practice.
BGC Squared projects provide expertise, funding, resources, and time to support within three areas:
Applied Earth Science
We apply BGC’s expertise and tools to global challenges in partnership with communities and organizations. Our work includes natural disaster risk management, climate change adaptation, improving natural resource development practices, environmental protection, and stewardship.
Education & Outreach
We share our knowledge in the fields of earth sciences and engineering with future generations. With university students and those at the beginning stages of their careers, we support technical skills development through mentorship for university design projects and student research. With younger generations, we aim to ignite and foster interest in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math (STEAM) fields.
