Donations and Sponsorships

Donate To The Engineers Foundation of Ohio

When you support EFO with a contribution, you are helping EFO introduce thousands of kids to the world of engineering.

Students often choose a career in engineering simply because they were introduced to it at a young age through an EFO program.

The student that takes part in the Imagine Engineering second grade coloring contest may later compete in MATHCOUNTS as a 6th, 7th or 8th grader.

And in a few more years we may see that student’s application for an EFO scholarship as he or she contemplates engineering college choices.

After that student becomes an EI or PE, he or she can benefit from our Engineer As Leader program that provides management training for engineers.

I want you to know how much the support of our donors means to the kids of Ohio and their future as engineers. Each program is designed as a stepping stone to a professional engineering career!

Our "Stepping Stones" programs are not possible without the support of our profession!

EFO is a recognized 501 C (3) tax-exempt, non-profit organization. In accordance with the Tax Reform Act of 1993, your contribution is deductible.

To support our programs, use the "Donate" button below to make a donation online.  Thank you for your commitment and we look forward to your generosity.
