KLA-Tencor Corporation established the KLA-Tencor Foundation to focus more closely on the needs of the communities where our employees and their families live and work. This approach to charitable giving management allows the KLA-Tencor Foundation to target organizations in which we are personally involved and which seek to improve the communities in which we work, live and do business. The KLA-Tencor Foundation encourages all KLA-Tencor employees to share their time, talents and resources with organizations and programs that make a difference in their local communities.
The mission of the KLA-Tencor Foundation is to positively impact the communities in which we live, work and do business. The KLA-Tencor Foundation carries out this mission by building relationships with education, health and wellness and social service providers inspiring individual philanthropy and establishing and maintaining support programs.
The KLA-Tencor Foundation seeks to support educational programs and institutions (with an emphasis on STEM- Science, Technology, Engineering and Math), Health & Wellness programs and providers as well as local community human needs organizations.
Meeting the Mission
The Four KLA-Tencor Foundation Programs
The KLA-Tencor Foundation and KLA-Tencor employees support community initiatives worldwide through four programs: cash grants, in-kind donations, volunteer time and matching gifts. Programs vary locally and globally.
KLA-Tencor periodically donates excess furniture/fixtures and spare computer and IT equipment to the KLA-Tencor Foundation who in turn donates these materials to organizations around the world. All inquiries regarding the in-kind donations program should be sent via email to
KLA-Tencor encourages its employees to participate in volunteer activities that make a positive impact in their local communities and community non-profit organizations often look for volunteers to donate their time.
Matching Gift Program
The KLA-Tencor Foundation matching gift program was established to encourage good citizenship on the part of KLA-Tencor employees through support of charitable, cultural and civic programs that benefit their local communities. Participating organizations must be 501(c)(3) tax exempt (or international equivalent) and have been approved by the KLA-Tencor Foundation. The KLA-Tencor Foundations make matching contribution of up to $500 per KLA-Tencor employee donation per calendar year. The KLA-Tencor Foundation may also respond to regional and global disaster relief efforts by matching funds for employee donations to organizations providing relief services to affected areas; this program will be available to KLA-Tencor employees globally when appropriate.
