Mission: The ASCE Foundation provides support for programs that enhance quality of life, promote the civil engineering profession, advance technical practices, and prepare civil engineers for tomorrow. The Foundation seeks to help build a stronger profession to meet tomorrow's national and global challenges.
Results: In the past year, the Foundation provided $750,000 in financial support to ASCE programs. We hope to meet or exceed that level in 2012. We typically fund programs within four main areas: •Awards & Scholarships, •Strategic Initiatives, •Communications & Outreach, and •Education & Student Programs Without generous contributions, many of these programs would not exist or be able to sustain their current level of operation.
Geographic areas served: National
Programs: Support for programs of related organizations: provide grants and contributions to asce, and affiliates, for the advancement of the foundation's mission. This includes the support of programs within three strategic areas: (1) education for today & tomorrow -- programs that prepare and inspire the next generation of civil engineers. (2) policy & participation -- programs that advance civil engineers as entrusted leaders within our communities. (3) advancing the profession -- programs that leverage the full breadth of the profession to increase its positive impact on our world.
