A Shared Vision For The Future
The SME Education Foundation works to foster strong partnerships with corporations, foundations, organizations and individuals.
How You Can Help
Our corporate partners, through their financial support, in-kind donations or volunteer engagement, have been a vital part of helping us provide students access to an advanced manufacturing education – and they’ve benefitted by helping build a prepared, qualified workforce.
We welcome support from charitable foundations – it’s critical to our efforts to prepare skilled workers for STEM professions. In addition to scholarship support, foundations provide necessary funding to support program development and key initiatives in their own regions and communities.
Your personal gift to the SME Education Foundation will strengthens the development of programs to prepare talented and successful young people for advanced manufacturing careers. Annual gifts at the Honor Roll level ($1,000+) enable us to meet our most pressing needs and to fund our highest priorities. Donations are tax deductible.
