Inspiring the Future


At the heart of IEEE Foundation's work is its menu of innovative Signature Programs and Priority Initiatives -- each one delivering immediate impact coupled with long-term growth in intellectual capital, human resources capacity, and technological literacy.

Signature Programs are significant, have a broad impact, and inspire people to connect with the Foundation and with IEEE. These are IEEE-run public imperatives with which the Foundation partners to proactively raise external philanthropic dollars. By investing in IEEE Foundation Signature Programs, you will engage deeply in addressing a specific challenge for maximum impact. Together, we will achieve the momentum needed to transform lives.

Signature Programs must display proven success and fit within one of the Foundation’s two Areas of Focus:

  1. Education, including the history of technology and the profession
  2. Applying technology for social impact and innovation

The addition of Signature Programs will not be a routine activity for the IEEE Foundation. Signature Programs require careful consideration and research, and are agreed upon jointly with IEEE and approved by the IEEE Foundation Board of Directors. New Signature Programs may be considered annually.
