As the philanthropic arm of IEEE, the IEEE Foundation inspires the generosity of donors so it may enable IEEE programs that enhance technology access, literacy and education, as well as support the IEEE professional community. The IEEE Foundation cultivates resources and relationships to advance IEEE's core purpose to foster technological innovation and excellence to benefit humanity. The IEEE Foundation relies on donations to bring the exhilaration of scientific discovery to students, foster technological innovation, preserve history, and promote awareness of the long-reaching effects of engineering and its impact on humanity.

The IEEE Foundation fulfills its purpose by:

  • soliciting and managing donations

  • awarding grants to IEEE grassroots projects of strategic importance
  • supporting high impact Signature Programs 
  • serving as a steward of donations that empower bright minds, recognize innovation and preserve the history of technology

With contributions from generous supporters around the world, the IEEE Foundation seeks to increase the understanding of how technologies are created and how they impact society, individuals, and the environment. Interdisciplinary in its activities and transnational in scope, the IEEE Foundation has the potential to improve people's lives. The IEEE Foundation strives to be a leader in transforming lives through the power of technology and education.
