GM's relationship with the Smithsonian dates to 1954 when the company donated the first mechanical heart pump to the Smithsonian's Museum of American History Division of Science, Medicine and Society. A team of GM scientists and engineers developed the mechanical heart pump that made possible the world's first open heart surgery. Since then, the company has contributed other notable items to the institution, including "Alice," the world's first computer-controlled electric robot.About the GM FoundationSince its inception in 1976, the GM Foundation has donated hundreds of millions of dollars to American charities, educational organizations and to disaster relief efforts worldwide.
