For nearly 50 years, NSBE has worked tirelessly to increase the number of culturally responsible black engineers who excel academically, succeed professionally, and positively impact the community. With your support, we can continue to offer more to our national and international community.
With your support, we can continue to help and promote the aspirations of collegiate and pre-collegiate students and technical professionals in engineering and technology to our national and international community.
Between our hundreds of international chapters and tens of thousands of active members, the National Society of Black Engineers is proud to support the mission to "increase the number of culturally responsible black engineers who excel academically, succeed professionally and positively impact the community." With support from you, we can help foster STEM programs, reward academic excellence through scholarships, provide mentorship opportunities for black professionals, and ultimately enrich the lives and communities of our members. Please give a one-time or monthly gift today to help us build the next generation of STEM pioneers.
Donating crypto-currency directly to The National Society of Black Engineers is more tax-efficient than donating cash and can save you money. It is a non-taxable event, meaning you do not owe capital gains tax on the appreciated amount and can deduct it from your taxes. That means you’re able to donate more to charity and deduct more on your tax return. The difference? Sometimes more than 30%.
This makes Bitcoin and other cryptocurrency donations one of the most tax-efficient ways to support your favorite cause.

Donor Advised Funds
A donor-advised fund (DAF) is a centralized vehicle for charitable giving that makes it easy for donors to dedicate funds to support their favorite nonprofit organization. It also provides an operationally convenient and tax-efficient method for donors to manage their charitable giving.
With a DAF, charitably inclined individuals, families, and businesses make an irrevocable gift to a public charity that sponsors a donor-advised fund program and may take an immediate tax deduction. Donors can then recommend grants over time to IRS-qualified 501(c)(3) public charities. DAFs also allow donors to approach their charitable giving thoughtfully by involving other family members or colleagues in their philanthropic decisions.
DAF Direct is a free web application that enables our supporters to directly initiate grant recommendations from their donor-advised fund from the National Society of Black Engineers website. With a few clicks, you can recommend grants from your DAF to NSBE to support our mission to increase the number of culturally responsible black engineers who excel academically, succeed professionally, and positively impact the community.
Matching Gifts and Volunteer Grants
Did you know that many companies offer a matching gift and volunteer grant program to encourage charitable giving among their employees? Some companies even match gifts by spouses and retirees. By simply completing an employer’s matching gift form (online or paper), you may be able to double or even triple the impact of your gift! Take a look to see if your organization will match your donation to NSBE.
Volunteer grant programs are corporate giving initiatives in which companies make monetary donations to organizations where employees volunteer regularly. If you volunteer with NSBE, it’s an easy way to provide us with additional financial support! Learn more about volunteer grants HERE.
