Sustainable Development Initiatives Fund
The Sustainable Development Initiatives Fund (SDIF) is focused on a commitment to sustainability and infrastructure initiatives supporting technical resources, specialty conferences, publications, and more. The SDIF was established to help secure a sustainable future in which society has the capacity and opportunity to maintain and improve its quality of life, without degrading the quantity, quality, or the availability of natural, economic, and social resources.
SDIF was established in 2019 to offer greater impact from the philanthropic support organizations and corporations provide for ASCE sustainability initiatives. The fund’s first campaign was held in conjunction with ASCE’s 2019 International Conference on Sustainable Infrastructure(ICSI) and raised more than $176,000 for sustainability initiatives. Since its inception, the fund has supported and continues to support the work of ASCE’s Committee on Sustainability, ASCE’s Standard Requirements For Sustainable Infrastructure, ASCE’s report on Sustainable Procurement, selected International Coalition for Sustainable Infrastructure activities, and ASCE’s 2021 Report Card for America's Infrastructure.
