ASSE Region 6 Foundation Challenge Status/Update

We are currently in 5th place – here are the reasons the other regions have moved ahead.

  1. Region III – $5,000 individual donation plus company matched it.
  2. Region VIII – They held an auction at the NEA PDC and donated $12,500 total
  3. Region V – A chapter that hadn’t donated before gave $5,000

Region III company match donation was huge!!

We are actually not that far off pace to get into the top three. Having new members and chapters donate will help us push it through! The Low country chapter donated $700 recently!

Across the region if we were to get around 100 new donors to donate just $5, we could jump up to 3rd place, and with each chapter donating $250 we could move up to 2nd. Both lofty goals, but obtainable!

Why are we participating in this Challenge:
#1 invest in the future of our profession.
#2 The top three regions will earn Foundation program bucks, which can be used to fund Foundation-related programs such as scholarships or grants in their region, based on the total amount of donations raised for Safety Matters:

  • First place – 8% of total amount raised for Safety Matters
  • Second place – 5% of total amount raised for Safety Matters
  • Third place – 2% of total amount raised for Safety Matters
