We appreciate every single one of our generous donors and, wherever possible, we recognise each gift with a special IET thank you. Below you’ll find more information how your donation can leave behind an enduring memory.
Once you donate, we’ll send the recipient a certificate with the confirmed wording for the foundation block.
You can have up to 30 characters (including spaces) on each seat plaque or foundation block. It’s your responsibility to ensure that the details provided for engraving are correct.
It may take up to three months after the receipt of your donation for your wording to be engraved.
We don’t accept company names on the Foundation Wall or on seat plaques. These are intended to celebrate the contribution of individual donors through the inclusion of their own name or the name of someone special to them.
There are only 626 seats and 1,000 foundation blocks in total.
Donations must be made through our Virgin Money Giving page. Virgin Money Giving deducts 2 per cent from your donation for this service plus a 1.45 per cent card processing fee (1.6 per cent for American Express and PayPal), which also includes processing Gift Aid.
Any information entered on the Virgin Money Giving site won’t be used for updating IET records and will be used only in connection with your donation.
The funds raised will directly support our educational programmes with 5 to 19 year olds, Diamond Jubilee Scholarships and Engineering Horizons Bursaries.
