Winter / Hiver 2017 13 IEEE Canadian Foundation IEEE Canadian Foundation Fondation Canadienne de l’IEEE ROM THE PRESIDENT—We want to thank you again, and recognize your support to the IEEE Canadian Foundation in 2016. Each gift has impact to future genera- tions and current practitioners, and is managed to meet the highest expectations of donor intentions. Your gifts allowed us to enhance the learning experience for electrical, electronics and computer engineering students across Canada with our pro- grams of McNaughton Centres and Scholarships. Students and other recipients also benefit through the co-funding of special projects that develop engineering enthusi- asm and skills at all levels. Increasingly, these projects use technol- ogy for the benefit of humanity. “Success Stories” on our website, the monthly IEEE Canada newsletter and in this magazine demon- strate the wide range of technical, professional and development opportunities that your gifts support. Our General Fund is crucial to our ability to operate each and every year, and your undirected donations allow us to keep our base strong. Our Endowed Funds support a wide range of awards, prizes and scholarships. Please consider a directed donation to endow an IEEE Canada award or create a new award of your choosing. Gifts may be designated to any one of the following funds of the IEEE Canadian Foundation. • General Fund – supports IEEE McNaughton Learning Resource Centres across Canada, related Scholarships, and Special Grants • Canadian Life Members Fund –supports activities of interest to Life Members, potential engineers, and engineering students • Technology for Humanity Fund – supports new and innovative projects that seek to apply technology for the benefit of humanity. • Vancouver Section Scholarship Fund – supports scholarships awarded by the IEEE Vancouver Section • The IEEE PES Canadian Scholarship Plus Fund – supports scholarships in undergraduate electric power programs in Canada • The IEEE Canadian Foundation Nick Cercone Graduate Scholarship in Computer Science Fund – supports a scholarship in Computer Science, a field of studies of interest to IEEE • Kingston Section Scholarship Fund – supports scholarships awarded by the IEEE Kingston Section • Raymond D. Findlay Annual Undergraduate Schol- arship – supports a national scholarship recognizing leadership and professionalism We appreciate your past support and urge you to continue to do so and increase your contributions where possible. If you have not yet made a donation, please join your peers— this is your op- portunity to stand with others who choose to make a difference. We could do so much more with your financial support. All the different ways to give and donor recognition programs are fully described on our website. The IEEE Canadian Foundation wants to hear from you – if we can better engage and support our community, please let us know.
