We give back to the communities where we live and work

More than $1.3 million in 2012 to support charitable causes around the world

Tellabs employees give generously to causes they care about. Employees may take up to 6 paid days each year to volunteer. Inspired by our employees' generosity, Tellabs created the Tellabs Foundation in 1997 to support efforts in education, health and the environment.

The Tellabs Foundation has contributed more than $18 million to nonprofits since it began.
