About Us

The Philadelphia Engineering Foundation, a 501(c)3 organization, is the charitable arm of the Engineers’ Club of Philadelphia (a 501(c)6 trade association).  Membership in the Foundation and its Board is contingent on membership in the Club.  The Foundation was established in 1967 to promote knowledge, education, and training in the science and profession of engineering.

The Foundation administers several awards and scholarships as part of Delaware Valley Engineers Week. This provides a 501(c)3 tax deduction to individuals contributing to these awards.

Thanks to an in-kind grant from IBM, the Foundation has developed a student outreach website to provide information about engineering and engineering programs for K-12 students as well as college and university level programs for parents, students, educators, and the general public. The site is still being populated with programs, but you can check it out at Discover Engineering in Greater Philadelphia.

The Foundation is working on other programs to promote and advance the engineering profession.  One of our projects is Engineering in the City, which we are pursuing with The Franklin Institute.

The Foundation is continuing to expand its efforts in student outreach and to provide a means for charitable contributions for this effort.
