OUR VISION

AEG Foundation plays a key role in the success of our profession.

Established by three Past Presidents of the Association of Engineering Geologists (AEG) in 1992, the AEG Foundation plays a key role in the success of our profession. The AEG Foundation's vision is to create a culture of giving back to the profession, and to instill complete confidence in donors that their money is well-invested and well-spent. Our core programs emphasize scholarship, research, and professional development to improve professional practice. We support outreach to increase the public's appreciation of environmental and engineering geology in geo-hazard evaluation and risk reduction.

Committees

The AEG Foundation is successful due in large part to the time and expertise our volunteers provide. The AEG Foundation Board of Directors fill the following committees.

Finance Committee - Responsible for the investments of the Foundation, the review of annual budgets, and financial reports.

Nominations Committee - Recruits new Directors and officers for the AEG Foundation.

Programs Committee - Plans and implements the Foundation funds. This includes periodic reviews of existing fund charters and review of proposed new fund charters.

Get Involved!

There are positions and activities for everyone to get involved, whether you have 2 hours or 20. The following positions and activities accept volunteers from outside the AEG Foundation Board of Directors
.
Contact staff@aegfoundation.org if interested.

Communications

Works with internal and external publications and media to promote and advertise Foundation activities. This includes the AEG Foundation Facebook page, AEG Foundation website, AEG Insider, AEG News, educational facilities, and other professional organizations.

Donor Reception

Plan, organize, and coordinate an annual reception for donors, which is held during the AEG Annual Meeting. While most of the coordination is done by the AEG Foundation President and AEG, planning, organizing, and set up on the day of the meeting is always helpful.

Scholarship Committees

Our most popular volunteer opportunity.  The committees review the scholarship applicants each year and make recommendations to the BOD on scholarship recipients. 

 

Silent Auction

A yearly function coincides with the AEG Annual Meeting, where we solicit items for auctioning, set up the online auction, and advertise for it. All donations received from the silent auction are earmarked for the designated scholarship for that year.

Fundraising

Sections, chapters, or individuals often do matching or other fundraising events to raise support for a specific scholarship or fund. 

These can be as small as a "pass the hat" at the Section and/or Chapter meeting or as entertaining as a wine tasting event.  Powerpoints and other supporting information is included in the Get Involved section of the website.
