IEEE Foundation is leading a special campaign across IEEE’s expansive network to raise awareness, forge partnerships, and fund Priority Initiatives.
Make Your Impact on Giving Tuesday!
PES GM Recognition

At this point in the year, it is hard to avoid the constant bombardment of ads for holiday shopping - specifically, Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Through Giving Tuesday you are able to shift your mindset from shopping to making a difference in your community. As you leave your Giving Tuesday mark, consider your technical community and select from one of the programs of the IEEE Foundation that are transforming lives.

This year, we have set an ambitious goal to raise $100,000 before 27 November. You can help us get there!


An Historical Visit with the Gillilands

Clinton and Mary Gilliland, longstanding supporters of IEEE Foundation, are Honored Philanthropists in the IEEE Heritage Circle and were recently elevated to the Alexander Graham Bell level. They recently journeyed from Palo Alto, CA, US to make their first trip to Piscataway, NJ, US to gain a first-hand update on their investments in multiple IEEE programs.


Introducing Empower a Billion Lives

Three billion people around the world live in severe energy poverty, including 1.1 billion with absolutely no access to electricity. The lack of energy access severely affects their living standard, health, productivity, and education, while preventing digital and financial inclusion. An initiative of IEEE Power Electronics Society, The IEEE Foundation supported IEEE Empower a Billion Lives (EBL) Competition, is a recurring global competition aimed at fostering innovation to develop solutions to electricity access.
