"With support from the IEEE Foundation, Engineering for Change (E4C) was able to create the infrastructure for a long-term, effective Appropriate Solutions Evaluation Program (ASEP). E4C is now on track to develop the evaluation methodology and continue the participatory design of the supporting platform. This will solidify the framework, so that evaluated solutions will start rolling out in 2013, growing the catalogue on a continuous basis. This fresh content and first-of-its-kind capability increases E4C's standing as a thought leader within the engineering and
global development communities."

“By supporting the Foundation, a member can support the future efforts of IEEE which are built on the past activities. We all rely on the outstanding efforts of earlier members of IEEE. We build on their achievements and help our fellow man with our own personal hard work and achievements
in the electrical engineering area.”
Daniel D. Hoolihan, IEEE Senior Member
"The generous funding from the IEEE Life Members Fund of the IEEE Foundation enabled IEEE WIE to inspire and empower girls, and raise awareness of the importance of engineering and how it benefits humanity, while documenting the achievements of women in the profession as role models."
Keyana Tennant, Program Manager, IEEE Women in Engineering
regarding the US$25,000 grant project entitled IEEE-WIE – I Change the World. I am an Engineer
"The Museum of Innovation and Science has made a major achievement through the generosity of the IEEE Life Members Fund of the IEEE Foundation. The Museum has now digitized its entire collection of more than 1,500 General Electric (GE) motion pictures, created a YouTube channel- “Schenectady Invention and Technology Films,” and re-housed the films in
new acid-free containers."

“I’m proud to be a supporter. The IEEE Foundation allows me to channel my giving to projects and activities related to our profession, which are making a difference. I encourage all IEEE members to learn more about the IEEE Foundation and the opportunities to support its programs, activities and initiatives. I also encourage members to become involved by proposing philanthropic projects that
will make a difference.”
