    Invest in the Future - The AIAA Endowment Campaign

    The AIAA Foundation invites you to join an extraordinary group dedicated to the advancement of aerospace innovation.

    Make a gift to the AIAA Foundation Endowment Campaign: Gifts of any amount can make a big difference in the future of our industry when donated to the AIAA Foundation Endowment Campaign. Your gift reach thousands of students, teachers, and professionals year after year to fund scholarships and awards to outstanding students, innovative design competitions that push the envelope of current technologies, and grants to K-12 teachers who inspire and ignite interest in science and technology. To make a gift with even more impact, consider a multi-year pledge to the Foundation.

    The AIAA Endowment Fund: The Endowment Fund supports the success of all of the Foundation’s programs. By utilizing the interest earned from the Fund, the Foundation maintains a stable, long-term source of income. Your gift to the Endowment Fund allows the Foundation to utilize funds where they are most needed, and supports our educational programs in perpetuity.

    Named Gifts: A special perpetual honor, gifts of $100,000 or more may be named for an individual, family or corporation. This is an outstanding opportunity for international recognition and tribute. A named gift will be placed in the endowment fund of your choice, or a special program may be established which meets the mutual interests of the donor, the Foundation, and our community.

    The AIAA Legacy Circle: Creating a legacy gift to the fund of your choice is easy. Leave a bequest of cash or stock to the Foundation in your will, name the Foundation as a beneficiary of your 401(k) or life insurance, or contact your estate planner to set up a gift annuity or gift of real estate. If you decide to join the Legacy Circle, notify the Foundation, and we will add your name to the honor roll of dedicated individuals who want to leave a legacy for the future.

    The AIAA Memorial Fund: Gifts of any amount may be made in honor of a special person. Memorial Fund gifts may support any of the above Endowment Funds, or may support the Endowment Fund, where contributions are placed where the need is greatest.
