Historically, Mentor Graphics has had a strong corporate commitment to the community. We provide our employees with a variety of avenues for community involvement.
School to Work Activities
Continually striving to be an excellent corporate citizen, Mentor Graphics has a strong link with the public education system. As a technology company, we value public education believing that the success of Mentor Graphics and the education community are linked. Our employees have opportunities to be involved in School To Work activities such as:
Mentor Graphics Foundation
Mentor Graphics donates one percent of its yearly profits to the Mentor Graphics Foundation. The Foundation was established to ensure the communities within which we live and work gain from our presence. The Mentor Graphics Foundation has two programs to support the development of quality education programs for our U.S. employees and their families.
K-12 Volunteer Grant Program
This program is designed to support our employees' involvement in School to Work activities and K-12 education. For the first 100 hours MGC employees spend volunteering in a school, the Foundation will grant the school $500. Every additional 20 hours earns another $100.
Matching Gift Program
The Foundation will match employee donations up to $500 per year to both K-12 Schools and Universities/Colleges.
Mentor Graphics strives to develop long term relationships with engineering colleges and universities around the world because we believe the success of the electronics industry is dependent upon highly skilled engineers.
