Give to Civil and Environmental Engineering

The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering in the George R. Brown School of Engineering at Rice is engineering a resilient and equitable future, addressing the world's pressing problems brought on by climate change and aging infrastructure with a goal of improving lives and preparing for the future. Their interdisciplinary, quantitative, and forward-thinking approach is building the communities of the tomorrow. Rice civil and environmental engineers create more resilient urban structures and infrastructure systems, identify and prevent risk from complex health and natural hazards, address energy source transitions and the impact on air quality and climate, and ensure equitable, sustainable, and secure clean water access. Join us in building a resilient and sustainable future by supporting Civil and Environmental Engineering excellence.

Give Now

Every gift, no matter small or large, makes an impact

Whether you choose to give back through an annual gift, establishing an endowment or or supporting a department funding priority, every dollar counts. In fact, most gifts to Rice Engineering are less than $1,000 but together they add up to millions for student awards, academics, research and programs so we can educate leaders and tackle grand challenges. If you are interested in discussing how you can make a non-cash gift such as appreciated stock, Donor Advised Fund (DAF), IRA Charitable Rollover, or through a deferred gift vehicle such as a bequest, please contact and we would love to help facilitate that donation.
