“We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give.”
Sir Winston Churchill

The holidays are traditionally the time that many of us focus on giving back to our communities.  Whether by donation of time or money, groups need our support. It is our hope that we can compile a comprehensive list of US charities or philanthropic groups that could benefit specifically from the Civil Engineering Communities.  Please comment by adding to our list and we will compile for a future BLOG.

1. Engineers Without Borders
EWB-USA helps create a more stable and prosperous world by addressing people’s basic human needs by providing necessities such as clean water, power, sanitation and education.

2. ASCE Foundation
The ASCE Foundation provides support for programs that enhance quality of life, promote the profession, advance technical practices, and prepare civil engineers for tomorrow. Each program helps build a stronger profession for tomorrow’s national and global challenges.

3. ACE Mentor
The ACE Mentor Program of America, Inc.’s mission is to enlighten and increase the awareness of high school students to career opportunities in architecture, construction and engineering and related areas of the design and construction industry through mentoring; and to provide scholarship opportunities for students in an inclusive manner reflective of the diverse school population.

4. Habitat For Humanity
We seek to eliminate poverty housing and homelessness from the world and to make decent shelter a matter of conscience and action. Today, they have built over 350,000 houses around the world, providing more than 1.75 million people in 3,000 communities with safe, decent, affordable shelter.

5. National Trust for Historic Preservation
