Inspire And Educate Tomorrow’s Leaders
Join other elite organizations and community supporters as champions of an innovative program that gives students in your community the opportunity to learn, grow and build as they work with engineers, designers and construction professionals. Your support, whether in money, employee time, or in-kind donations, helps students nurture both their engineering and creative curiosity while exposing them to the engineering and design opportunities available throughout the industry.
Every donation helps. For those interested in sponsoring complete programs, a single student teams, or anywhere in between, targeted sponsorship levels are described below. And, all sponsors are listed on our website, at our Bridge Showcase & Awards Event, and in presentations materials at any public event we attend.
All donations to Engineers Alliance for the Arts are tax deductible and we are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Please download our donation form to donate via check today. Or, if preferred, donations can be made online via Paypal (no Paypal account required).
