Malta, New York, December 19, 2022 – GlobalFoundries Inc. (Nasdaq: GFS) (GF), announced that the GF-Town of Malta Foundation has awarded its annual grants to the community for the 12th consecutive year in a row. The grants support a variety of community needs and programs with 23 grants totaling $154,200. With this year’s 2022 grants, the Foundation, formed by GF and the Town of Malta, has placed more than $1.73 million into service in the Malta community since 2011.

Each foundation is managed by a separate, independent Board of Directors and uses income earned from investments to fund a wide variety of local community programs.

The 2022 Malta grant awards were presented last week at the David R. Meager Malta Community Center at the annual awards ceremony.
