The Oklahoma Engineering Foundation is working on the fundraising this summer to bolster the programs that serve the youth interested in STEM careers.  The programs have been well attended, but every year it is a struggle to maintain the fundraising needed to plan for the next program year.  This year is no different and there are challenges to getting the funding. 
 
Individual donations are a challenge for OEF and in recent years the individual donations have fallen way off.  Individuals like you started OEF and it will take you to continue it into the future.  I need your help in soliciting those in the technical societies and professional organizations that you belong to donate now to OEF.
 
The capital campaign is targeted to raise a goal of $30,000 in the fundraising season.  This is needed to ensure that the programs like MathCounts, Engineering Fair, and OEF Scholarships continue to provide opportunities for youth to stay involve with STEM.  This will go directly to the capital budget and provide staff and materials directly involved with planning, organizing, and executing the programs.
 
The program campaign is targeted to raise a goal of $20,000 in the fundraising season.  This is needed to start a new program in STEM during the Engineering Fair that is relevant to today’s technology in STEM.  Two of the growing trends are drones and artificial intelligence.  With the money from the program campaign, this new activity can be promoted, awarded and planned for the upcoming program year.
