Dow Corning Midland Plant – Community Support

Funding and support for educational programs

As a chemical manufacturing facility, the Midland Plant is interested in supporting educational activities that encourage understanding of math and science, particularly chemistry.

We believe quality education is critical to the future and well-being of Dow Corning and our community.

To promote academic excellence and encourage student participation, the Midland Plant provides monetary support through the Dow Corning Foundation Donor Advised Funds to select Midland County programs that are not directly supported by tax dollars and/or tuition.

Our priorities

We give priority to projects that:
  • Provide K-12 and college students with experiences and tools that will help them understand the world of work and enhance their workforce readiness (mentoring programs, science fairs and school-to-work activities)
  • Help local residents acquire job skills to enhance workforce readiness (job skill training or mentoring programs focused on job retention)

The Midland Plant awards scholarships for math/science and the skilled trades to Midland County high school seniors. For more information, including an application form, please contact your high school guidance counselor.

Giving example – Delta College Process Operators Program

In response to a growing need for skilled chemical process operators at Dow Corning facilities in the area, the Dow Corning Midland Plant donated equipment and provided expertise to help Delta College establish a chemical process operators training program.

The program has been highly successful, with more than 89 percent of the program's graduates receiving job offers, including opportunities for some to work at the Dow Corning Midland Plant.


How to apply

If your project meets our giving criteria and you would like to be considered for funding through the Dow Corning Foundation Donor Advised Funds, contact the Midland Area Community Foundation for more information.
