August 2018 Campaign Update
Realize the Full Potential of IEEE
IEEE Foundation is leading a special campaign across IEEE’s expansive network to raise awareness, forge partnerships, and fund Priority Initiatives.
Unprecedented Success: Dual IEEE Milestone Dedication

The IEEE Foundation continued to introduce members to the Realize the Full Potential of IEEE Campaign during a recent reception held between dual IEEE Milestone dedications in Silicon Valley. The Campaign, the first in IEEE history, seeks to raise $30 million in support of Foundation funded programming, such as the IEEE History Center. To date the Campaign has succeeded in raising in excess of $16 million or almost 54% of the goal. This level of success is unprecedented in IEEE's experience.

During the events held on 15 August, IEEE dedicated two important and long-awaited IEEE Milestones in Silicon Valley, CA, USA – “Birthplace of Silicon Valley” (Shockley Labs) and “Moore’s Law” – and in between the two dedications the IEEE Foundation proudly hosted a reception for the members and donors who gathered to celebrate both.
