Your Giving Tuesday Support Makes an Impact

Giving Tuesday is a global generosity movement that unleashes the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and their world. It inspires people to give, collaborate and celebrate generosity. On 3 December 2019, IEEE and IEEE Foundation programs that rely on your philanthropic support participated in this global day of giving. The results were stunning. More than 295 of your friends and colleagues gave more than US$100,651 in support of programs that Illuminate, Educate, Engage and Energize.

As a direct result from the support of donors like you, IEEE programs can:


  • Fuel careers in Power and Energy with five first-year IEEE Power & Energy Society Plus Initiative Scholarships.
  • Engage IEEE Life Members around the world by supporting five Life Member Affinity Group Activities.
  • Support seven seed grants to new SIGHT Chapters. These grants support initiatives that hold planning sessions, survey local communities to discover pressing challenges and jumpstart sustainable development projects.
  • Provide Midwest United States libraries with two additional complete science kits. These science kits can be checked out as easily as a library book.

    This is just a small sampling of what you made possible.

    Philanthropic investment from members and friends, like you, is one of the ways IEEE programs grow and expand to be most impactful. Your philanthropy, when spread across IEEE’s large network, has the power to transform the lives of individuals or communities. During Giving Tuesday 2019, supporters had an opportunity to share comments along with their donations. These comments show the profound sense of impact and appreciation that these supporters have. We are pleased to share a few today:
