Picture of the 45th Annual Gala The National Action Council for Minorities in Engineering (NACME, Inc.) is celebrating 47 years of providing scholarships and support for under-represented students in the field of engineering with bold, innovative actions. NACME’s inspiring vision now supports almost 1,000 students—and advances an agenda with a national scope.

On Thursday, Dec. 2nd, NACME will celebrate its Holiday Gala and its decades-spanning mission to foster an engineering and computer science workforce that looks like America. NACME will inspire participants to “imagine the future” with a virtual event that will include receptions on campuses in multiple cities, inspiring messages from celebrities and athletes, testimonials from alumni and students, and an enthralling panel discussion led by Chief Technology Officers from globally-recognized firms. Proceeds from this event will be used to offset tuition costs for almost 1,000 engineering and computer science students who depend on NACME scholarships to fund their education.
Corporate sponsorships and individual donations are key to the success of our fundraising efforts. We ask that you consider donating products that will showcase your brand to hundreds of engineering and computer science students attending college at our 37 partner institutions. (If possible, we ask that you make these items redeemable via a digital gift card or redemption code.) We deeply value your consideration—and appreciate your interest in supporting our efforts to foster an engineering workforce that looks like America!
