ASME members and generous supporters who remember the ASME Foundation as part of a planned gift are recognized as members of an elite group: the Archimedes Club. Founded in 2003, the Archimedes Club unites the ASME planned giving community in the common goal of supporting programs that will help advance the engineering profession. By choosing to make a planned gift, you can feel confident that you are helping to ensure the future of the engineering profession.
The Archimedes Club was named in honor of the famed Greek engineer, inventor, astronomer, and physicist who is considered one of the greatest mathematicians of all time.
