Coffee Day 2020!

National Coffee Day is September 29 & we’re hosting our 2nd annual ‘Donate A Cup to ASEF’ Day!

We’ll be celebrating all week, 9/27 – 10/3, with a fundraising goal of $5,000. Mark your calendars and plan to #BoostASEF with a contribution.

When you donate, snap a picture and post to social media using #GaveACup and tag @ASE360. We want to see your pictures whether you’re sipping on a cup of coffee at home, at work, or with your favorite barista at a local shop. Get in on the fun and ‘Donate A Cup’ to ASEF! Be the caffeine hero of your echo lab and make a donation in their honor.

Giving Tuesday Now – May 5

The ASE Foundation has joined GivingTuesday’s brand new global day of giving and unity: Giving Tuesday Now. Mark your calendars for May 5 to help us raise $5,000 to support our members during these unprecedented times. 

Donations will be accepted beginning at 4:00pm EST on May 4 through 12:00pm EST May 6.

Annual Research Awards Gala – Update

The ASE Executive Committee recently made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s Scientific Sessions. As we explore alternative options for sharing this year’s Scientific Sessions content, we are also exploring options to still offer the Gala live at a later date this year. We will be discussing all possibilities with our ASE Foundation Board before making a final decision. In the meantime, all table and seat purchases will be held however, if you’d prefer to request a refund we are able to process those requests. If you do select to receive a refund, we ask you to consider leaving the tax-deductible donation portion of your purchase with the ASE Foundation as this event represents our largest fundraiser for the year and is instrumental in supporting our 2021 projects. 

If you have any questions, please contact gala@asecho.org.

Spring Giving Day POSTPONED

After careful consideration, we have made the decision to postpone the Spring Giving Day fundraiser that was scheduled to open this afternoon. The global effect of COVID-19 continues to evolve and this is unfamiliar territory for all of us. We will continue to monitor this developing situation and look to reschedule Spring Giving Day sometime later this year. 

Spring Giving Day Is Next Week!

ASEF will welcome the first day of spring with its 5th annual Spring Giving Day on Thursday, March 19th. 

Help us spring into action with a donation to kick start our 2020 annual appeal. Donating will be simple with our special web page that will be live starting at 4:00 PM, March 18th through 12:00 PM March 20th

Remember to share your support on social media! Tag @ASE360 and include #SeedsOfChange, #SpringGivingDay, #MarchGladness, #ASEFoundation. We want to know what ASEF means to you.

Thank You! AUS Bushfire Fundraiser Recap

Contributions made towards the ASE Foundation’s Australian Bushfire Fundraiser have allowed us to donate $3,205 to the Astralasian Sonographers Association (ASA).
