IEEE Foundation Responds to COVID-19

Just like you, we have been watching closely as events surrounding COVID-19 change rapidly. As with any dynamic situation, the impact on our community will evolve, and so shall we. Given the challenges of the pandemic, the IEEE Foundation COVID-19 Response Fund has been established to support the IEEE response.

There is a need to respond. IEEE programs are adapting to address the challenges presented by COVID-19. Even so, this global pandemic presents a unique challenge. As the world works to find its way through this crisis, the members of the IEEE community will step up - as you always do. When this happens, the IEEE Foundation COVID-19 Response Fund will make sure the resources needed are available.

Gifts to the IEEE Foundation COVID-19 Response Fund will ensure IEEE can:
  • Drive global innovation in response to the COVID-19 crisis through collaboration and the sharing of knowledge
  • Enhance public understanding of engineering and technology and pursue the practical application of engineering and technology pertinent to the COVID-19 crisis
  • Be a trusted source of educational services for educators, families, and learners practicing social distancing and provide resources to support life-long learning
  • Provide opportunities for virtual career and professional development throughout the COVID-19 crisis
  • Inspire the IEEE worldwide audience by providing relief from the myriad repercussions of the COVID-19 pandemic and supporting communities that advance technical interests, inform public policy, and expand knowledge pertinent to the current state of global affairs
This is just the beginning of IEEE’s response to COVID-19, and with your help, we will expand our resources, as well as ensure a solid base of support for IEEE strategic goals impacted by the pandemic.

Donate to the IEEE Foundation COVID-19 Response Fund - the first $20,000 will be matched dollar for dollar.

IEEE-HKN Pivots to Online Programming and Resources to Support Members and Chapters

As closures, quarantines, and online university classes became the norm, IEEE-HKN quickly delivered resources for its Chapters ensuring those who earned membership into HKN could still take part in the Honor Society’s rituals and events even though they may not be able to meet in-person.

A page was added to the IEEE-HKN website to update members on resources, recommendations and virtual options for Chapter operations and member experiences. Resources include a Remote Induction Ceremony that holds fast to the Induction Ritual that has been in use since 1904.


IEEE Smart Village Volunteers Deliver Connections and Creative Solutions

While COVID-19 has raised concerns over infection and transmission worldwide, it has also brought out the best of volunteerism and the human spirit and shines a light on the people and causes that inspire us to serve. This is particularly true for IEEE Smart Village’s (ISV) work to support energy-impoverished communities globally by providing renewable energy, community-based education and entrepreneurial opportunities. According to ISV leaders, its many volunteers are working tirelessly to address the current and future needs of villagers in the face of this unprecedented global pandemic.

Happy IEEE PES Day!
Virtually celebrate the history of IEEE's oldest society through the month of April and beyond. Twelve years ago, the IEEE Power & Engineering Society (PES) was reborn with renewed determination to serve the needs of its members and society. PES is the largest philanthropic IEEE Society partner of the IEEE Foundation. 
Commemorating the date the first SIGHT group petition was submitted in 2012. This event is designed to foster a spirit of community for the global SIGHT network, increase awareness within IEEE, promote the opportunity to support SIGHT, and celebrate the impact SIGHT volunteers and groups are making.
EPICS Expo - Santa Clara University
