Tribute gifts to the IEEE Foundation can be a deeply gratifying way to recognize someone that touched your life while advancing technology for humanity.

There are several types of gifts to help you pay tribute:

Gifts in Memory - Create a lasting memorial for a friend or loved one who has passed away by making a gift to the IEEE Foundation. In memoriam gifts are a thoughtful way to express your sympathy and to perpetuate the engineering profession and the mission of the IEEE Foundation.

Gifts in Honor - Show those closest to you the important role they play in your life by making a gift in their honor to support the study of science and engineering.

Gifts in Celebration - Celebrate life’s milestones –birthdays, graduations, anniversaries, retirements, father’s day or any special occasion by making a donation to the IEEE Foundation, maybe even in lieu of presents. Your honoree will appreciate the thoughtful gift in support of promoting an understanding of how technology impacts society.

Gifts of any amount are gratefully accepted and can be made at anytime during the year. When making a tribute gift to the IEEE Foundation, you can use the Tribute Giving Form (PDF 70kb) or provide the name of the person being honored or memorialized and the type of occasion (i.e., birthday or anniversary). It is also important to provide the names and addresses of those you want the IEEE Foundation to notify of your gift. The IEEE Foundation will notify the honoree or their family of all tribute gifts.

Tribute gifts may be designated to the IEEE Foundation's area of greatest need or to any one of the 130+ designated funds of the IEEE Foundation. Gifts totalling US$20,000 or more can be used to establish a tribute fund to support a new scholarship, travel grant or other IEEE activity. The IEEE Development Office will assist you with determining how best to apply your giving.
