Giving through the IEEE Membership Renewal

Membership Renewal Giving to the IEEE Foundation

Making a gift during your IEEE Membership Renewal is one of the most convenient ways to support the IEEE Foundation while ensuring IEEE remains your professional home. With your support, you can transform the lives of individuals and communities around the world. Your contribution is essential in growing IEEE and the philanthropic programs of the IEEE Foundation.

“I find IEEE very valuable by keeping dedicated electrical engineers connected while supporting their ongoing learning. I am besieged with requests to support this or that. All are worthwhile, but I rank IEEE near the top!” – Paul Dorvel, IEEE Life Senior Member
