Gifts, such as bequests, have greatly benefited the development of disciplines such as engineering and medicine. In recent years, there has been an increase in the number of individuals who have expressed an interest in making a bequest for ergonomics. Benefactors wish to donate to a discipline that has enriched their lives and given them the opportunity to make a meaningful contribution to society through their teaching, research, and practice.

There are essentially two types of bequest: general and specific. The general bequest permits the IEA to pursue initiatives that will further its fundamental objectives of increasing the body of ergonomics-related knowledge, promoting the teaching and practice of ergonomics, and sponsoring international activities. Specific bequests are used to support ergonomics-related programs in industrially developing countries to promote particular branches of the discipline, and provide scholarships and prizes which stimulate research and recognize significant achievements in the field.

Individuals or organizations who wish to support the IEA through other means, such as sustaining membership or donations, please visit Sustaining Member.

Making a bequest to the IEA is not difficult. If you have named the IEA in your will or are contemplating giving this type of gift, suggested wording for making your bequest is provided below. Since countries have different legal traditions, donors are urged to obtain legal advice when naming the IEA as a beneficiary and to contact the IEA Treasurer to ensure their wishes can be carried out properly. Members of IEA Federated societies may wish to direct their bequest to their national society. To make a general or specific bequest, please contact the IEA Treasurer.
