  • IGS Hall of Fame: $100,000+
  • Platinum: $25,000+
  • Gold: $10,000+
  • Silver: $5,000+
  • Bronze: $1,000+

Secretary-Treasurer of the IGSF Boyd Ramsey said: “Giving to the Foundation is a wonderful opportunity to help make real change in improving access to and growth of educational opportunities in our industry. The results are immediate and impact exponential, leaving a lasting legacy to the next generation of engineers.

“I must thank all our donors so far including Platinum donors J.P. Giroud and Solmax, and renewing donors FLI, FC Geosynthetics, FR Liners and others.

“Being able to count yourself as a Founding Donor in a body with ambition and impact for your industry is an opportunity that cannot be missed!”
