The SE 2050 Commitment Program (“SE 2050”) is dedicated to supporting our professional community in the goal of achieving net zero embodied carbon structural systems by 2050. SE 2050 is run by a committee of the Structural Engineering Institute (SEI) of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), a 501(c)3 organization. Our work is primarily supported by volunteers dedicating their time to a critically important cause operating almost exclusively on donations and grants. We have finite annual resources and welcome support from like-minded individuals, organizations, and companies who believe in the mission of SE 2050 and that are able to provide additional financial support.
Your donation will fund several key initiatives including the development and maintenance of our embodied carbon and structural material quantity database, developing educational resources including our free ECOM tool and embodied carbon guidance documents, and making the necessary updates and maintenance of our website and advocacy materials.
Your generous gift is tax deductible as a charitable contribution for federal tax purposes as allowed by IRS regulations. ASCE’s federal tax ID is 13-1635293. You will be mailed a receipt for your contribution to your billing address.
Donations from SE 2050 Signatory firms are always welcome but never required. We feel strongly that a structural engineer’s most significant impact on the mission of SE 2050 is to be part of the program, advocating for its cause, and contributing to its success. Therefore, if a firm that offers structural engineering services wishes to support SE 2050 financially, we respectfully require that the company first make a formal commitment to SE 2050 and remain active in meeting the requirements of the program.
Every gift, no matter how large or small, makes a difference. Help us accelerate the understanding, education, advocacy and tracking of embodied carbon in our structural systems as we aim to achieve net zero by 2050!
