Social Contribution to Promote Mutual Support and Digital Tolerance

“Care about society and sustainable development” define GIGABYTE’s interactions with society. In 2002, we formed the GIGABYTE Education Foundation to promote technology education, arts and culture, and aesthetics and also create a harmonious and advanced society. In conjunction with GIGABYTE’s core competencies and corporate influence, we are devoted to promoting the welfare of people. In addition, we also encourage employees to be a part of the community through charity and social service. By making a difference with limited resources and giving back to society through tangible and sustained initiatives, GIGABYTE employees can make our surrounding communities a better place.

  • As a computer hardware manufacturer, GIGABYTE extends our influence in science and technology education based on our core values. We hope to shorten the science and technology gap between regions and generations through practical participation and experience such as: understand the logic of a computer from a binary logic game, understand and assembly a computer by oneself, visit the production lines to enhance learning effectiveness and impressions, etc.
