2017 UEF Annual Report

In 2017, the United Engineering Foundation (UEF) completed its 113th year of operations. The UEF continued the robust tradition as a significant leader in the engineering community. The UEF maintained an endowment that closed the year with funds in excess of $19,450,000, which is up significantly from 2016 which had an excess of $17,700,000. The 2017 endowment provided resources for the funding of additional grants in 2017 that demonstrated the Foundation’s continued commitment to its vision of advancing the engineering arts and sciences for the welfare of humanity.

The UEF Difference

We’ve been grateful to UEF for the grants we’ve received for Engineer Your Life, Design Squad outreach and, more recently, Dream Big. There are few foundations focused on engineering, and even fewer that recognize the value of empowering engineers to promote the profession. More than simply providing financial support, UEF grants provide the catalyst for collaboration that helps these programs succeed.”
