The UEF Difference

Thank you for your grant to support the “The Next MacGyver” project, which allowed world-wide crowd-sourcing of ideas for a TV show featuring an female engineer lead character and engaging top Hollywood talent to provide a real shot at making that long-desired goal happen. It is inspiring and refreshing to know there are organizations like yours willing to take on “outside-the-box” ideas that could have outsized impact."
