Giving Tuesday

For 24 hours on Tuesday, December 1, 2020, the ACEC Research Institute will celebrate Giving Tuesday, a global giving movement that has been built by individuals, families, organizations, businesses, and communities in all 50 states and in countries around the world. The ACEC Research Institute is proud to participate in this movement and seeks to engage the entire ACEC community in this opportunity.

The engineering industry strives to solve some of the world’s most complex and pressing challenges. The work ACEC’s member firms do for their clients connect communities, open doors for economic development and improve quality of life.

The pandemic has placed an even greater focus on the importance of engineering’s contributions to the built environment with the industry uniquely positioned at the forefront of designing and retrofitting buildings, solving transportation needs, and focusing on health and safety concerns that will shape the physical environment of the post-pandemic economy. Engineers are at the center of the conversation, solving for the new normal.




In an effort to further boost our joint mission of helping to propel the engineering industry forward, the ACEC Research Institute will be participating in Giving Tuesday on December 1, 2020.

We’d like to invite you to show your support by pledging to donate at least $20.20 for 2020. 

Other ways you can help include:

  1. Visiting the ACEC Research Institute donation page and making a donation on or before Tuesday, December 1, 2020.
  2. Spreading the word by telling your friends and peers, forwarding them the donation link or sharing any emails you may receive.
  3. Following us on Twitter and use our hashtag, #ACECResearchInstitute.
  4. Tag us in things you post about Giving Tuesday and use #GivingTuesday.
