How to Give

40th Anniversary Campaign

Forty years ago, AFCEA International set out on a journey to support the next generation of communications and electronics engineers and scientists. We started with scholarships, expanded into classroom grants, and today our over 60 Chapter Educational Foundations support students and educators through science fairs, internships, and other innovative and impactful outreach in their local communities. As we see a shortage in the cyber workforce and a need for STEM education for every student, the mission we embarked on in 1979 is more relevant than ever. Join us in celebrating our accomplishments from the last 40 years and help us continue for 40 more! Check our progress towards our $400,000 goal and donate today!

Matching Gifts

Work with your employer to make your contribution go even further. Many corporations in the United States will match their employees' contributions to qualifying non-profit organizations, often doubling or sometimes even tripling the amount of the contribution. Your employer may be one of these companies. To find out, simply check with your company's human resources department. If your company does match such gifts, you will need to obtain a form from your company and send it to the AFCEA Educational Foundation along with your contribution. The foundation can then follow up to arrange for payment of the matching donation. For more information, contact the Educational Foundation.
