$10

BARBARA LISKOV LEVEL

Thank you for supporting our students at the Grace Hopper Conference! Barbara Liskov was the first woman to earn a Ph.D. in computer science in 1968. She continued to be a trailblazer, developing several programming languages that advanced many object-oriented programming and operating systems.

$25

ERNA SCHNEIDER LEVEL

Thank you for your donation! Our students will never forget this experience! Erna Schneider was awarded one of the first software patents for creating a computerized switching system for telephone call traffic…a true innovator in the field!

$50

JEAN E. SAMMET LEVEL

Feeding the body fuels the brain! Your donation will cover meals for a student for one day at the conference. Thank you for your support! Jean E. Sammet developed the FORMAC programming language in 1962, the most widely used computer language for symbolic manipulation of mathematical formulas.

$100

ANITA BORG LEVEL

No one wants to eat alone! Your generous support will provide meals for two students over one day of the conference. Thank you for your donation! Anita Borg founded several important communities and organizations that brings together women working in and with technology, allowing them to share their accomplishments, ideas and successes. Co-founder of the GHC, Anita Borg has been instrumental in fostering a supportive community for women in tech.

$250

ADA LOVELACE LEVEL

Our students need a good night’s rest to make the most of the conference! Your generous support will provide hotel accommodations for two students for one night. Thank you for helping our students experience this amazing opportunity! Ada Lovelace is considered to be the first computer programmer - in the 1840s she developed an algorithm for a computer that didn’t yet exist! Today, she has been memorialized by the object-oriented programming language that bears her name, Ada.

$1,000

GRACE HOPPER LEVEL

Imagine impacting a student’s academic success and career aspirations? Your donation will fully support a student’s attendance at the conference. Thank you for making a difference for our students! Rear Admiral Grace Hopper was at the forefront of computer and programming language development from the 1930s - 1980s. She is most known for the development of computer languages written in English rather than mathematical notation. What a great role model for our students!
