LGS Innovations donated $7,500 this week to USGIF’s EdGEOcation Giving Fund—the largest single donation to date. “When it comes to ensuring our nation’s continued leadership in science and engineering, it takes a village,” said Kevin Kelly, CEO of LGS Innovations. “Education starts early, and we’re proud to support STEM initiatives across
the country.”

The Giving Fund supports USGIF educational programs, including awarding scholarships to university students, accrediting university programs to grant academic GEOINT certificates, delivering STEM materials and introducing GEOINT to K-12 students, and administering professional certification to the GEOINT workforce.

“We’re absolutely thrilled with the generous donation by LGS to our EdGEOcation Giving Fund,” said USGIF CEO Keith Masback. “This initiative, which we launched in 2016, is allowing us to build upon the longstanding support of our corporate and individual members, sponsors, and event attendees. By upgrading and expanding our K-12 initiatives, USGIF truly offers a comprehensive continuum of education, training, and professional development. This pipeline starts at the elementary level, extends through our accredited college and university programs, and on to professional development and certification, providing a lifetime learning.”
