Fostering a culture of giving to accelerate the positive social impact of technology.
HPE Foundation's mission is to deploy skills, resources, and technology to address social challenges and advance the way people live and work.
In 2019, the HPE Foundation launched HPE Accelerating Impact to engage team members in supporting tech non-profits, who are building original hardware or software to achieve social impact missions. We partner with Fast Forward for this flagship initiative. Across 4 years, the initiative has mobilized $5+ million of HPE Foundation funding to support these tech non-profits, who have positively benefited more than 360 million lives.
A force for good
We believe that, together, we can be a force for good, and that technology has the potential to enable greater efficiencies, mitigate social inequities, and drive better solutions to the world’s most complex challenges.
The HPE Foundation is committed to leveraging our technology potential to support non-profits saving lives and advancing healthcare globally.
American Red Cross
The American Red Cross (ARC), which contributes 40% of our nation’s donated blood to hospitals and other care providers, stated this past year that the organization is facing its worst blood shortage in over a decade.
The solution? Working together with Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), on its NextGen AI-driven blood management system, the ARC is now able to better predict demand, organize the appropriate number of blood drives, and efficiently manage its current inventory to reduce waste and encourage more accurate orders.
What started as a pro-bono collaboration between the ARC and HPE, showing the value of integrating external data sources and innovative machine learning techniques to improve the management of the blood supply chain, is today showing immense success. Currently, the advanced machine learning model developed by HPE has already outperformed prior models by 79%, and the ARC is able to better predict demand, organize the appropriate number of blood drives and social events to gather product, and efficiently manage their current inventory to reduce waste and encourage more accurate orders.

Red Cross Disaster Responder Program
When it comes to disasters, preparedness is key. Through our longstanding support of the Red Cross Disaster Responder Program, HPE Foundation leverages resources to address all phases of a given disaster – from preparedness to immediate response, all the way through long-term recovery.
Natural Resources Defense Council Climate Resilience Programs
Climate plays an instrumental role in the frequency and severity of disasters and crises disrupting the lives of communities around the world. HPE Foundation partners with the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) to address the importance of climate resiliency, reduce communities' vulnerability to the impacts of climate change, and help manage recovery and rebuilding in the aftermath of climate-related disasters.
DEI and human rights
Career Village's mission is to democratize access to education and career information and advice for underrepresented youth across more than 185 countries. Of the students on the platform, 55% are female, 75% are students of color, and 75% come from low-income households. The HPE Foundation provided grant funding which enabled the expansion of Career Village’s tech and operations. HPE volunteers have provided career advice to students via this platform – advice that has been read more than 232,000 times.
