SHPE Boston Announces its New 501(c)(3) Status
Boston, MA – The board of directors is pleased to announce that the Boston Chapter of the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE) has been accredited as a government-certified nonprofit organization.
Obtaining 501(c)3 status has been key to our mission; this status will help us to increase our value for our local members in different ways:
- Entering into partnerships with other non-profit organizations for a reduced fee. This provides SHPE Boston members with access to trade associations and working groups in the Boston area that contain company leaders in various tech industries.
- We will be able to provide Tax Deductible Donation Receipts facilitating our partners and regional companies to donate toward SHPE Boston.
- Ability to access a vast number of technical resources eligible to non-profit organizations like discounted software, hardware, services, and training.
We are deeply thankful to Victor Esparza and Darryl Sterling for their hard work to make this achievement possible.
SHPE Boston is ecstatic about the progress we have made and want to thank each of you for all that you bring to the community. We look forward to seeing you at our future events.
The Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE) was founded in Los Angeles, California, in 1974 by a group of engineers employed by the city of Los Angeles. Their objective was to form a national organization of professional engineers to serve as role models in the Hispanic community.
SHPE changes lives by empowering the Hispanic community to realize their fullest potential and impacts the world through STEM awareness, access, support and development. SHPE’s vision is a world where Hispanics are highly valued and influential as the leading innovators, scientists, mathematicians and engineers.
