Founded in 1994 as a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization, the ASCE Foundation has inspired a generous spirit of giving in support of our vision to build a better world.
The ASCE Foundation provides critical funding to ASCE programs and initiatives. Gifts to the Foundation go to support programs in four main categories: Student Activities, Leadership, Education and Engineering Programs.
The Foundation was established to own and operate ASCE’s headquarters building, raising more than $4 million during its first campaign to purchase and renovate the office building in Reston, Virginia. Since then, the Foundation has gone far beyond that initial activity, raising more than $43 million for special projects and programs for ASCE and the civil engineering profession.
