Giving Back to Organizations
The Foundation sponsors many events that help increase awareness and raise funds to help select organizations that benefit groups on a national level. These funds are raised through national events that will not compete with any local efforts your chapters may have to raise money for local philanthropy. There will be a host of events and programs designed to generate revenue for these efforts including options that may help you generate some funds for your local charities.
FIRST® and SIM Foundation have executed a Memorandum of Understanding to collaborate on support for FIRST’s programs across the country. SIM Foundation and FIRST share a common goal of promoting science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education to students, including girls and underrepresented groups, aged 4-18 years. It is our intent to engage SIM members across the nation as Mentors, Coaches, Volunteers, Fundraisers or other roles in FIRST programs for the combined benefit of both organizations.
