Fostering Engineering Leadership for the Nation


The first meeting of the SAME Foundation Board of Directors was held January 26, 2017. Establishing the Foundation is a major step toward achieving the goals and objectives of the 2020 SAME Strategic Plan. We now have an enormous opportunity to support the development of the next generation of military, government civilian, and A/E/C industry leaders. The Foundation also will provide a secure and beneficial repository for charitable and other bequeaths from members of the Society and the public at large. We are so fortunate to have an extraordinary group of individuals who have stepped up to lead the SAME Foundation. The Foundation is chaired by Col. John Mogge, Ph.D., RA, F.SAME, USAF (Ret.).
