SEI Futures Fund

  • Give to the Future of Structural Engineering

    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 which build a brighter future for our profession. Because some of these activities fall outside the SEI annual operating budget, we need philanthropic support from individuals and organizations.

  • Your gift will help us impact strategic initiatives established by the SEI Futures Fund Board of Directors:

    • Promote student interest in structural engineering
    • Support younger-member involvement in SEI
    • Provide opportunities for professional development
    • Invest in the future of the structural engineering profession

    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.

    About the SEI Futures Fund

    Launched in 2013, as the successor to the SEI Endowment Fund, 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 will benefit 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.
