Annual Fund

The SFPE Foundation’s Annual Fund provides funding to support the Foundation’s mission through its operations as well as fund academic research grants to students worldwide.

Guylène Proulx Scholarship Fund

The Guylène Proulx Scholarship Fund was established in memory of Dr. Guylène Proulx, OC, one of the preeminent researchers and communicators in the field of human behavior in emergencies. This Scholarship honors her legacy by building on the research in her chosen profession. Donations to this fund provide a monetary award of up to $5,000 annually to the Proulx Award recipient, selected by a panel of human behavior experts.

Robert W. Fitzgerald Fund Challenge

April Hammond-Berkol created this donation challenge in tribute to retired WPI Professor Robert W. Fitzgerald. For every dollar donated to this fund, Hammond-Berkol will match one dollar, up to a maximum of $2,000 per year, for the next five years. Donations to this challenge will be used to sustain funding for the Guylène Proulx Scholarship.

Matching Funds

UL Matching Fund

We are excited to announce the establishment of the UL and William Henry Merrill Society Matching Campaign for the SFPE Foundation. The UL and William Henry Merrill Society Matching Campaign will match donations to the Guylène Proulx Scholarship Fund, Annual Fund, and the Robert W. Fitzgerald Fund Challenge. Under this matching campaign UL will contribute up to $25,000 per year for 5 years by matching contributions made by SFPE members and SFPE chapters. The contributions made by UL under this campaign will be devoted to student research projects related to fire safety. This UL and William Henry Merrill Society Matching Campaign is a great way for SFPE members and chapters to leverage their contributions. When you contribute you contribution is worth more. Your contribution could double or triple your contribution, depending on what mission you are donating to.

Double Your Donation

Many companies offer matching gift programs to encourage employees to contribute to charitable organizations. Some provide matching funds to support employee volunteer hours. Most of these programs match contributions dollar for dollar, and some will even double or triple the amount of your gift!

Please check with your company to see if it offers a matching gift program that will match your gift to the SFPE Educational and Scientific Foundation Inc. If your employer requires an Employer Identification Number (EIN) (i.e. Federal Tax Identification Number), please use 04-2701210.

You may mail your completed matching gift form to the address below or email it to jzhu@sfpe.org. SFPE Educational & Scientific Foundation
Attn: Foundation Matching Funds
9711 Washingtonian Blvd. Suite 380
Gaithersburg, MD 20878

Your personal gift and matched contribution will be credited to the fund you designate above.

We are excited to announce the UL Matching Fund Campaign is available. UL's campaign has resulted in millions of dollars being donated to charitable organizations across North America. SFPE is very proud and honored that UL has incorporated SFPE in this campaign to define, develop, and advance the use of engineering best practices; expand the scientific and technical knowledge base; and educate the global fire safety community, to reduce fire risk. We invite you to join us in continuing our tradition of creating change in the communities where we live and work by participating. UL is proud to support SFPE in your charitable giving by providing a dollar for dollar corporate match on the tax deductible donations you make through the campaign, doubling the impact of your gift. A contributor list will be coming soon.

Help us make the difference!
