For more than 50 years, Harvey Mudd College has relied upon the substantial philanthropic support of corporations. Their investments have helped the college achieve its number one ranking among engineering programs offering bachelor's and master's degrees and its ranking of 14th among the nation's 203 liberal arts colleges, designated by U.S.News & World Report in its 2007 edition of America’s Best Colleges.
There is a broad spectrum of opportunities in which to invest both in the future of HMC and your company. Corporate philanthropy may be an integral part of your college relations strategy, and can serve to enhance your reputation on campus, fostering recruitment of our students as well as faculty research collaboration. Many companies often direct financial support through the Clinic Program, in addition to providing traditional philanthropic assistance for financial aid and other institutional needs.
The Office of Corporate Relations will work with your company to ensure that your giving supports your strategic business goals while assisting HMC in meeting its primary educational responsibility.
How to make a gift
Corporate gifts are often provided in the form of cash, securities, equipment and real estate. Funding can be provided directly from the company's giving program or through its foundation. As a starting point, contact Barry Olsan, Director of Corporate Relations, via mail at Harvey Mudd College, 301 Platt Blvd., Claremont, CA 91711; phone at (909) 607-7015; or email at Barry_Olsan@hmc.edu.
Gifts are fully tax-deductible in the year they are made. If appreciated securities or other property are given, the charitable tax deduction is based on the market value, not the cost basis. While the giver determines the value, Harvey Mudd College will be pleased to acknowledge gifts through appropriate IRS forms.
