MSPE's Educational Foundation is exempt from taxation under 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 and contributions to it are deductible under Section 170 of the code.
The Missouri Society of Professional Engineers Educational Foundation (MSPE-EF) was established in January 1968 to promote the study of engineering and educate the public about engineering. It is governed by a Board of Directors made of 10 members of the Missouri Society of Professional Engineers. The Foundation is authorized to receive and administer funds for charitable and educational purposes under Section 501 (c) (3) of the IRS code.
ACHIEVING ITS MISSION
The MSPE-EF works to fulfill its mission by providing annual financial support to the Missouri State MATHCOUNTS Program. In addition, through its Chapter Grants Program, the Foundation supports a variety of STEM activities throughout the state.
The MSPE-EF is also able to encourage the professional licensure of engineering educators at the University of Missouri Campuses due to the generous endowment from William R. and Mila Kimel.
