Each year, the strength and generosity of the IEEE and IEEE Foundation community continues to grow; and 2023 was no exception. Nearly 550 donors generously gave a combined US$178,000 on this Giving Tuesday. This total includes US$64,000 worth of gifts that were matched by individual contributions from IEEE Foundation Directors. That is the most given to an #IEEEGivingTuesday campaign ever. You awe and inspire us with your philanthropy.

We are pleased to announce that the following eight programs received incentive grants totalling US$3,750 based on the number of donors and community fundraisers::
