Corporate Citizenship:Building Great CommunitiesWhere We Live and Work.
HSC has been part of the Great Lakes Bay Region community for over 60 years. Our employees live and work here. So, every day, every year, we take action to improve the quality of life for all our neighbors.
Our corporate citizenship leadership team members and ambassadors manage company efforts, direct funding decisions, lead local community projects and advance STEM education in Saginaw, Midland, Bay and Gratiot counties.
energizing our community through service
Each year, HSC employees serve on numerous boards, donate thousands of volunteer hours and raise money to support more than one hundred nonprofit and community programs across the Great Lakes Bay Region HSC employees also are empowered to recommend sponsorships and youth grants that make a difference in the communities they call home.
Supplementing our employee contributions, HSC invests in improving the quality of life throughout the Great Lakes Bay Region through our Community and Regional Empowerment (CARE) Fund, which provides up to $300,000 annually for local projects and programs. Schools, government units and local groups with 501(c)(3) designation may apply for grants through the Bay Area Community Foundation, Midland Area Community Foundation or Saginaw Community Foundation.
Annual Application Deadlines: January 31, May 31 and September 30.
CREATING A VIBRANT HOMETOWN
HSC’s employee and corporate citizenship efforts are designed to create resilient, sustainable communities across the Great Lakes Bay Region. We invest in key places, such as parks and community gathering spaces, and support community events that enrich all our lives.
A key focus of HSC’s corporate citizenship is promoting the health and safety of our neighboring communities through strong partnerships with local first responders. HSC provides annual training sponsorships for area fire departments and invites first responders to participate in training exercises on our Hemlock campus.

At HSC, we’re committed to safety for our employees, their families, and our neighbors. As part of our commitment to supporting our local emergency services in the Saginaw, Midland, Bay, and Gratiot counties, Hemlock Semiconductor is proud to announce the 2023 Fire Service Training Grant. This program was created to cover the cost of training, certification, or training equipment of the fire department’s choice as a small token of our thanks for their service to our community.
Applications are due in July of each year.

HSC’s community investments also aim to strengthen education across the Great Lakes Bay Region to create a diverse and equitable talent pipeline that will help our company grow and thrive for decades to come. With a focus on Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM), HSC’s education investments highlight and strengthen career pathways for K-12 students by supporting basic skills and employability training, as well as advanced education opportunities like our partnership with Michigan Technological University’s Summer Youth Programs in engineering.
In addition to these initiatives, HSC connects with the communities around us through our Community Advisory Panel, Community Connections Newsletter and our Annual Community Calendar contest.
