Community support

We are an educational, not-for-profit organization that contributes a significant percentage of revenue, every month, every year, without a separate fundraising campaign or administrative foundation. It's what we do.

SPIE has contributed more than $24 million in community support over the past five years

Integral to our mission to partner with researchers, educators, and industry to advance light-based research and technologies is a commitment to support, nurture, and develop the next and future generations, ensuring a sustained and healthy optics and photonics community.
