Dear Fellow Engineer:
Secretary of State, Mark Hammond, said, “Give with the heart, but give wisely.” It is time to make a contribution to the SCSPE Educational Foundation, Inc.
As an engineer, this contribution to the Educational Foundation can be from the heart as your donation goes to providing scholarships to rising juniors and seniors studying engineering at a South Carolina ABET accredited Engineering School. The foundation also sponsors the state MathCounts competition.
During this time of year, we are constantly reminded to help those in need. Scholarships to engineering students go to a worthy cause to help perpetuate the profession, and the MathCounts program has inspired thousands of Middle Schoolers to pursue their avocation for math, science and engineering.
As a reminder, your donation to the SCSPE Educational Foundation, Inc. is a tax deductible contribution, just as any contribution you make to a church or other charitable organizations. The Foundation is a wise choice for a gift as all proceeds go to educational programs – scholarships and MathCounts. There are no administrative costs for the Foundation
So, while you are in the giving mood, please consider a donation to SCSPE Educational Foundation, Inc. Here are some recommended giving levels:
Life Member – Gold $10,000 Silver $5,000 Bronze $2,500
Member — $200 Annual contribution
Ambassador — $150 Annual contribution
Contributor — $100 Annual contribution
Donation – Any amount
Make your checks to SCSPE Educational Foundation, Inc.
Mail to SCSPE, PO Box 11937, Columbia, SC 29211

PS – If you miss contributing before the end of the 2014, go on and make your Foundation contribution now for your 2015 charitable deduction.
