The Ming & Eva Hsieh Challenge
Many thanks to new member Ming Hsieh ('15) and his wife Eva for challenging all members and friends to increase their giving to NAE last year with a $250,000 challenge. We are very grateful for those who supported this exciting initiative; $812,196 was raised in response. Proceeds will benefit programs aligned with the NAE Strategic Plan.
Ming and Eva hope this challenge inspired others to give, just as the 2013 Madni Challenge spurred them to action.
Fabulous Turnout for Day of Giving!
The NAE greatly appreciates those of you who participated in our Day of Giving on December 1, 2015. 41 members and friends generously contributed over $74,000 in just one day! With private support, NAE will continue to increase the number, quality, and diversity of the engineering workforce, enhance engineering education, and fulfill its responsibility to provide independent advice to policy makers.
Many thanks for all that you do in service and support of our Academy all year long, and for making this special day of giving so meaningful.
Fran and George Ligler Challenge for Section 2
Fran Ligler, a member of the NAE Council and Section 2, and her husband George, both pictured on left, have pledged $100,000 to encourage giving by Section 2 members over the next 5 years or until the $100,000 goal is reached.
As an incentive, this matching gift challenge will match, dollar for dollar, any increase in a Section 2 member’s giving above what he or she gave the previous year. Section 2 members' gifts will be matched by both the Ligler and Hsieh challenges.
