Help advance the art, science, and practice of structural engineering with a gift to the SEI Futures Fund. SEI undertakes a broad range of activities that build a brighter future for our profession. Because some of these activities fall outside the SEI annual budget, we need philanthropic support from individuals and organizations.
Your gift impacts strategic initiatives established by the SEI Futures Fund Board:
Show your leadership within the profession and
give generously to the SEI Futures Fund. Your contribution, combined with those of your colleagues, will create robust financial support that will strengthen SEI efforts to build a vibrant community of structural engineers.
For 2016, the SEI Futures Fund will provide $57,265 in funding for these strategic SEI programs:

Review the 2015 SEI Futures Fund Annual Report on pgs 10-11 of the 2015 SEI Annual Report: Global Innovation and Leadership.
Proposals are invited for new strategic initiatives in line with SEI Futures Fund strategic areas that benefit the structural engineering profession and/or SEI as a whole, and would not otherwise be funded out of SEI Division operating expenses. If your SEI Division wishes to review the proposal, plan to do so to meet the June 1 final proposal submission deadline. Review the SEI Futures Fund Case Statement and the Guidelines for FY2017 funding requests.
The SEI Futures Fund leverages philanthropic contributions to help vital SEI activities and initiatives move forward. The Futures Fund is managed by its own Board of Directors, who are charged with oversight of the Fund including determining which programs to support.
100% of your gift benefits the SEI Futures Fund, free of any administrative burden. The Fund partners with the
ASCE Foundation, also a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization, to leverage their expertise in managing philanthropic gifts. Your contributions are tax deductible to the full extent of the law, and an acknowledgement and receipt will be provided.
Thank you to all the individuals and organizations that have generously supported the SEI Futures Fund and its predecessor the SEI Endowment Fund
