Thank You for Your Support in 2018!

The Office of Development would like to thank all of our members, friends, and staff who supported the National Academy of Engineering in 2018. We know that there are many worthy causes, and we are pleased that you chose to support the NAE. Your support underpins our ability to improve engineering education and increase the public’s understanding of the essential role of engineering in the advancement, security, and well-being of our society.

Thank you again for all that you did for the Academy last year. In the coming weeks, be on the lookout for a breakdown of how your support made an impact in 2018. 


Section Challenges Update - March 2019

In October 2016, NAE chair Gordon England announced the creation of a $100,000 Chairman's Challenge for Section 1 that he personally funded, and asked others to pledge their support of the NAE and fund giving challenges for their own sections. Thanks to his leadership, multiple other challenges have been established.

2018 marked the completion of four section giving challenges. The Section 1 challenge from R. Noel Longuemare, Jr., the Section 2 challenge from the Arindam Bose family, the Section 8 challenge from Chad Holliday, and the Section 12 challenge from the Blankenship family all concluded successfully on December 31, 2018. Take a look our snapshot of where these previous challenges finished. 


Donor Spotlight

Asad and Taj Cropped.jpgRecently, Julie and Alton “Al” D. Romig, Jr. (’03) established a $100,000 giving challenge for NAE members elected since 2015. All first time and upgrade gifts will count towards the challenge and have double the impact.

“For me, giving always feels good and I want to share that, to let other people get that rush,” says Romig, who currently serves as the Executive Officer of the NAE and is responsible for the program, financial, and membership operations of the Academy.

Asad and Taj Cropped.jpgDr. Madni reflects that, “a professionally successful career that does not include philanthropy is an incomplete and unsatisfying one and I never forget that achieving this privilege in my profession makes it incumbent upon me and my family to give back and help guide the generation following us.”
