The Boeing Co. announced on Friday that it will donate $10.6 million to 20 non-profit organizations that are fighting for racial equality and justice in the United States.

"At Boeing, we acknowledge the toll that systemic racism and social injustice have had on people of color, particularly Black communities here in the United States," Boeing President and CEO David Calhoun said and added, "With today's financial commitment to this group of nonprofit partners, we are hopeful that together, we can begin to make real advances in our ongoing pursuit of equality."

The company's decision comes at a time of heightened racial tensions in the US.
