About Our Auction
The AEG Foundation's vision is to create a culture of giving back to the profession, and to instill complete confidence in donors that their money is well-invested and well-spent. Our core programs emphasize scholarship, research, and professional development to improve professional practice. We support outreach to increase the public's appreciation of environmental and engineering geology in geo-hazard evaluation and risk reduction.
One way that you can help support the AEG Foundation is by participating in the Silent Auction. After taking a year off of hosting a Silent Auction, the AEGF is looking forward to making this Silent Auction a success, but we need our help! The AEGF manages 24 funds, which includes 13 scholarship funds, 8 grants, and 3 foundation support programs. To learn more about our funds, please visit https://www.aegfoundation.org/funds/
Last year, the AEGF was able to provide 20 scholarships to students totaling $30,000, and we are hoping to award even more this year. Please take a look through the Silent Auction items and place your bids to help support the AEGF.

About AEG Foundation
The AEG Foundation was founded in 1992 by three past presidents of the Association of Engineering Geologists. Incorporated in California as the Engineering Geology Foundation, the name was changed to AEG Foundation effective October 19, 2004.

The AEG Foundation Board has adopted governance policies to guide operations. Asset management is guided by an Investment Policy. Directors are bound by a Conflict of Interest Policy. The Foundation has a Compliance Policy that guides the preparation and filing of state and federal tax and information returns, and other regulatory filings. We review all Charters and policies on a regular basis.
