We encourage ChemE alums to make a minimum contribution of $1,000 or more. No gift is too small or large and the accumulated value will help to increase the amount of money that we raise for the endowment fund. Your donation to Dr. Joseph N. Cannon Chemical Engineering Endowment Scholarship Fund is tax deductible.

We also encourage faculty and organizations that he is a member of to make a generous contribution to the Dr. Joseph N. Cannon Chemical Engineering Endowment Scholarship Fund.
