Happy GivingTuesday!

Donate to ASEF’s $20,000 fundraising goal TODAY. 

This year, your donation is doubled thanks to ASE’s Past Presidents. They’ve teamed up and pledged to match $9,200 in GivingTuesday donations. Special thanks to Dr. Yvonne Gilliland too for her pledge of $1,000! Combined this makes up more than half our goal – now we’re counting on YOU to help us reach $20,000! 

After you donate, share your support on social media and tag @ASE360 with #GivingTuesday #ASEFoundation. We LOVE seeing your posts. 

Donations will be accepted through December 2.

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.
