The Mensa Foundation's Annual Report tells the story of the far-reaching impact of its efforts to support intelligence — efforts that include recognition of research and cutting-edge ideas, financial support of goal-oriented students, and sponsorship of programs designed to inspire the next generation of thinkers.
The report provides a comprehensive look at the Foundation's activities over the course of each year. This includes the national and international scholarship programs, award programs, gifted youth activities, Colloquiums, the Mensa Research Journal and the Foundation podcast series Conversations with Mensa.
Also included is information about the Foundation's financials and its international impact, as well as recognition of those individuals who generously support the Foundation's goals through their contributions. The rest of this story cannot be told without you. Donate to the Foundation today!
Available below are the current and past annual reports.
The past year was one of progress, change, and growth for the Mensa Foundation. The 2014 Foundation Report highlights include two new additions to the Board of Trustees; an expansion of the scholarship program (both in number of applications received and money awarded); and the most successful Colloquium to date.
The Foundation continues to have an impact in the lives of Mensans, volunteers, scholars and others invested in its vision to recognize, encourage and communicate excellence in intelligence. The 2013 report highlights successes in scholarships, the Colloquium, podcasts and publications, youth programs, research, awards and donations.
The Foundation continues its efforts to bring its programs to the Mensa “family” and the world through an improved and expanded Web site; an updated Colloquium event format; new Conversations with Mensa podcasts; additional educational materials posted to the award-winning Mensa For Kids Web site; and an increased social-media presence.
The Mensa Foundation reflected on its 40-year history during American Mensa's Annual Gathering this summer, hearing from early leaders Sander Rubin and Stu Friedman in a video presentation at the Saturday evening banquet. The sustainability of the initial programs and relevance today is amazing.
The Mensa Foundation and Mensa International, Ltd., work together to oversee several programs open to Mensa members around the world. Highlights of some of these are included here, including the most recent winners of the international Lifetime Achievement Awards.
The Mensa Foundation's big goal — to be seen as the global resource in all areas of intelligence — is ever more plausible because of our reputation for credibility. Information from around the world is readily available today; filtering that information to provide practical benefit to society is an increasing challenge.
