Swe’s #givingtuesday Campaign Features Mary T. Zeis And K-12 Outreach / Swenext

About #GivingTuesday

#GivingTuesday was November 28, 2017. Thanks to a generous anonymous matching donation, SWE’s Board of Directors and Leadership, and SWE’s members and donors, we raised $13,190 yesterday! This exceeded our goal of $10,000 and is, by far, our most successful #GivingTuesday to date!

About the SWE’s K-12 Outreach /SWENext

SWE is committed to supporting women at all stages of their careers, from those in grades K-12, college, the workplace, and beyond. We have recently increased our efforts to spark an interest in engineering and technology for girls through the SWENext program.

SWENext is a way to become part of the Society of Women Engineers before college, for students 18 years and younger. Students can join here for free! Currently, there are over 3,500 SWENext members, over 1,000 SWENext alumni, and over 100 SWENext clubs around the country.
