Thanks to our donors and the funds raised in cooperation with IEEE Organizational Units, the IEEE Foundation works across IEEE to invest in IEEE programs that bring the promise of technology and the knowledge to use it to the world. Many of our programs offer multiple benefits. Below we categorize them under four main topics: Illuminate, Educate, Engage and Energize, though their benefits span multiple categories. 

lightbulbIlluminate – the possibilities of technology by using it to address global challenges 
Technology is a propelling force that makes it possible to take action. It allows us to ask previously unimaginable questions and find solutions to unsolved problems.
bookEducate – the next generation of innovators and engineers
The future of technology depends upon the nourishment of brilliant minds, the creation of opportunities to dream, and the cultivation of a generation of socially responsible technology professionals.

magnetEngage – a wider audience in appreciating the value and importance of engineering and technology
Technological advancements and their impact on humanity during the past 150 years are monumental. Preserving this history enables us to better understand today and improve tomorrow.

batteryEnergize – innovation by celebrating technological excellence
Technological innovation pushes the boundaries of thinking, breaks new ground, and improves lives.
