And it’s great to see the impact it’s still making in so many young people’s lives today.”

MITES endowments

Endowments are lasting investments in MITES and our students. Gifts to our endowed funds are invested, and the earnings create a sustainable source of funding so that MITES can fulfill its mission for years to come. To bolster the MITES endowment pool, please contribute to the Wesley L. Harris Fund, the William H. Ramsey MITES Fund, or the Engineering Outreach Endowed Fund.

Create access to unique STEM programs

With your gift, you help us create access to unique STEM programs by removing the financial barriers that can hold scholars back, providing the technology and resources they need to thrive, and securing skilled and enthusiastic mentors to guide them.
