  • In the past three years alone, the foundation has given $90,000 to support and upgrade three manufacturing laboratories.
  • Haas regularly donates new tooling and materials, such as cutting tools, steel and aluminum, and other in-kind gifts.
  • Haas provides support for student projects, offers mentorship and sponsors department events.
