Corporate Responsibility

The Harris Foundation

The Harris Foundation plays a primary role in Harris Corporation's philanthropic activities in our commitment to being a responsible corporate citizen. While each of our offices and facilities worldwide supports local efforts in their individual communities, the Harris Foundation provides funding from a corporate perspective.

The Harris Foundation is governed by a Board of Trustees elected and appointed to serve three-year terms. Our primary philanthropic platform is quality education in the areas of science, math, engineering and technology (STEM). Our funding priorities are STEM, charitable organizations that align with our mission critical customers and some local civic, cultural and health/welfare organizations.

Support from the Harris Foundation is provided to organizations through our employee gift matching program and direct contributions. On an annual basis, our Trustees review proposals for support for funding during our next fiscal year (July 1 – June 30).


The Harris Foundation grant proposal process is being automated.

Please check back in mid-March 2014 for additional information about the process and timeframe for submitting an online proposal to request financial support or inclusion on the Harris gift matching list of approved organizations for fiscal year 2015. All proposals must be submitted via the new online system; paper and email submissions are no longer accepted.
