Inspiring the Future

It’s National Estate Planning Awareness Week: the IEEE Foundation is delighted to highlight the importance of estate planning, share examples of donors who are Forever Generous, and offer estate planning tips and tools designed to help you leave a permanent legacy of philanthropy.

It is never too early or too late to start! As you create or update your plan, consider the role IEEE has played in your life and the #IEEELegacy you want to leave. The IEEE Foundation team would be honored to assist with finding the right way for you to integrate IEEE into your estate plan.

We hope you’ll participate by joining the IEEE Foundation and David Sandhu, a former SpaceX Engineer turned Financial Planner for a free webinar. We will discuss how to “engineer” your future through the benefits and importance of estate planning. Approach your wealth, from one engineer to another, with tips and tricks on how to leverage laws and regulations and explore what makes the most impact on you and your family's future.

Join us for this free webinar, "Engineering Your Future" an Estate Planning Week Webinar on Thursday, 20 October 2022 at 1 PM ET.
