Inspiring the Future

I can’t imagine my career without IEEE. Since my student days at Auburn, I have been actively involved with this extraordinary organization. My time spent as an IEEE volunteer has been rewarded many times over, not only through professional advancement, but most importantly through the lifelong friends I have made through IEEE activities. Giving to the IEEE Foundation campaign is just one small way I can repay what I see as a rich life of benefits received. I sincerely hope you will join me in this important effort.”

Working at Bell Labs and now with the dedicated students at Stephens Institute of Technology, I appreciate the link between meaningful work and a satisfying life. I am grateful that IEEE has been the connecting thread through all my professional endeavors. Through IEEE, I have also gained new friendships and enjoyed many organization-sponsored activities. Supporting the IEEE Foundation Campaign is a powerful way for me to say thank you and allow others worldwide to benefit from IEEE priority initiatives. I can think of no better gift, and ask that you join me in this effort.”

History shows all the different ways people approached problems and the variety of solutions. For me, it made engineering less rigid and more accessible,” said Allison. Allison makes recurring gifts to the IEEE History Center REACH (Raising Engineering Awareness through the Conduit of History) Fund of the IEEE Foundation. “The automatic payment system is incredibly easy to use.”

Allison Marsh, IEEE History Committee
Allison realizes the importance of engineering history. She hopes to stand out as an exemplar to the rest of the History Committee to inspire more generous giving to programs such as REACH.

First, I would like to extend my deep gratitude to the Nathanson Family and to the IEEE Aerospace and Electronic System Society (AESS) for this great honor. Second, I am very grateful for the grant for continuing education in the radar area.”

By supporting the Foundation, a member can support the future efforts of IEEE which are built on the past activities. We all rely on the outstanding efforts of earlier members of IEEE. We build on their achievements and help our fellow man with our own personal hard work and achievements in the electrical engineering area.”

The generous funding from the IEEE Life Members Fund of the IEEE Foundation enabled IEEE WIE to inspire and empower girls, and raise awareness of the importance of engineering and how it benefits humanity, while documenting the achievements of women in the profession as role models.”

The Museum of Innovation and Science has made a major achievement through the generosity of the IEEE Life Members Fund of the IEEE Foundation. The Museum has now digitized its entire collection of more than 1,500 General Electric (GE) motion pictures, created a YouTube channel- “Schenectady Invention and Technology Films,” and re-housed the films in new acid-free containers.”

As an undergrad, I always looked forward to reading about @IEEEorg student members doing great things in @IEEEInstitute Now I'm deeply humbled to be an inspiration to young #STEM enthusiast. Thank you @IEEEFoundation & @IEEESmrtVillage for your remarkable contributions to my life.”
