The statistics are alarming—according to the National Science Foundation, America lags behind other nations in the number of students majoring in science and engineering at colleges and universities. Additionally, women make up just 20 percent of those receiving engineering degrees.

With your help—and through the Women in Technology (WIT) Foundation—we’re changing that statistic. Founded in 2004, the WIT Foundation is a 501c3 nonprofit that supports the philanthropic aims of WIT. The WIT Foundation focuses on pre-career programs, awarding cash grants to area organizations and nonprofits focusing on girls and STEM.

WIT created WIT GIRLS and WIT CAMPUS to begin, at an early age, guiding women in technology toward success.  WIT creates a community of female students of all ages, unites them with local professional women in technology, and then helps them make informed decisions about careers in science, technology, engineering and math.
