Private support enhances our capacity to be a public voice for engineering.
October 2017 - NAE President C.D. Mote, Jr. and his wife Patsy hosted an intimate dinner to celebrate the NAE’s most generous members and friends at the National Museum of Women in the Arts (NMWA). The NMWA is the only major museum in the world solely dedicated to championing women through the arts. It was a fitting location for the dinner since the NAE is pursuing programs like EngineerGirl, the Grand Challenges Scholars Program, and others with the goal of preparing and enabling underrepresented groups to pursue careers in S.T.E.M. related fields and tackle Grand Challenge like issues.
This year Jim (’07) and Marci Truchard were welcomed as new Einstein Society members and presented with their statuette as a token of the NAE’s gratitude for their generous support. In addition, 4 new couples and members were welcomed into the Golden Bridge Society, including, Rob (’14) and Lenore Briskman, Diana and Michael (’03) King, Julia Phillips (’04) and her husband John Connor, and Buddy Ratner (’02) and his wife Cheryl Cromer. We were also joined by 9 members of our Loyalty Society, including, Tina Bueche, Virginia Bugliarello, Bob Loewy (‘71), Venky (’92) and Jaya Narayanamurti, Maxine Savitz (’92), Stan (’91) and Evelyn Settles, and Mavis White. The Loyalty Society recognizes those members and friends of the Academy that have given consistently for 20 years.
The night closed with Dr. Mote highlighting the tremendous success of the third Global Grand Challenges Summit held in Washington, DC, and how important philanthropy will be to the future success of the NAE in addressing Global Challenge issues. Thank you to all of our members for your generous support, and thank you especially to those who are members of our giving societies.
