  • Pascal Society
  • Annual Donor List
  • Legacy Builders
  • Action Challenge Champions

The Pascal Society is the annual giving society of the NFPA Education and Technology Foundation—a tax-exempt, charitable organization dedicated to meeting the workforce development needs of the U.S. fluid power industry.

Named after Blaise Pascal, the French mathematician, physicist and inventor whose famous law describes fluid power’s force multiplier effect, the Pascal Society seeks to create a similar multiplier effect for the fluid power industry.

By combining the financial and volunteer contributions of many individuals into one concerted effort, the Society will develop the resources, tools and people needed to tackle our difficult workforce development challenge.

For more information on how to join The Pascal Society, contact Amy Zignego at (414) 778-3376
