United States Geospatial Intelligence Foundation (USGIF) announces the launch of its third annual EdGEOcation Giving Campaign, with the goal to raise funding and awareness for the Foundation’s K-12 educational outreach program. USGIF aims to generate $15,000 in donations by Jan. 11. USGIF’s K-12 programming brings geospatial intelligence (GEOINT) awareness and interactive STEM education into classrooms as well as provides resources for teachers to integrate GEOINT with existing curricula. Contributors to the giving campaign further the education of the country’s future engineers, analysts, cartographers, data scientists, and beyond. “As an educational non-profit, USGIF’s mission is to provide GEOINT education for people of all ages, to include helping the younger generation prepare for future career choices,” said Lindsay Mitchell, the Foundation’s lead educational manager. “All proceeds from the giving campaign directly benefit K-12 students, and with the community’s contributions, USGIF will continue to develop lessons and classroom resources to ensure more students are introduced to the exciting field of geospatial intelligence.”
