The IET Futures Fund supports our work to inspire the next generation of engineers and technicians, as well as raising the profile of engineering.

We are offering exciting hands-on STEM challenges to children from the age of four and supporting apprentices and undergraduates with scholarships that will launch their career in engineering.

Our programmes are reaching a wide audience and helping to increase diversity in our profession.

Where your money goes

We would like to invite you to support this vital work by taking your place in our inspirational London home.

Take Your Place

For a donation of £1,500, your generosity will be acknowledged with your name or the name of someone special engraved on a plaque on the back of an auditorium seat in one of our iconic lecture theatres as well as a Foundation Block on the Foundation wall.

For a donation of £750, your name will feature on an eye-catching Foundation Block on the Foundation wall in Savoy Place entrance hall.

For the engraving, you can choose up to 30 characters (including spaces), for example, William Webb FIET, for both the plaque and the Foundation Block.

Visit our How to donate web page to find out more and donate to the Take Your Place campaign.

Give a gift

Naming a seat is a perfect gift to mark the contribution, retirement, or long service of a colleague or employee.

It can also give long-standing acknowledgement and recognition of the work of inventors, mentors, and teachers – the inspirational engineers who change the world.
