Due to COVID-19 Our Golf Outing Is Cancelled for 2020
However you can still get involved by being a part of our fundriaser.
In an attempt to raise funds to supplement the loss of revenue, we are initiating a campaign to raise $10,000. We are turning to our closest friends first to help seed the fund so we are asking that you help kick it off with a donation. If we can reach our goal, it is our hope to be able to increase the amount and/or number of scholarships we award this year. The letter below will go out to our general mailing list in a couple weeks please read on to learn more about our fundraiser. You may donate online below
Many of you have been faithfully playing golf with us at our annual asbe Foundation outing and fund raiser for years. We thank you for your continued support. You have enabled our volunteer organization to continue its work with college and high school students guiding them into design and engineering careers and recognizing students for their academic excellence and leadership.
As we are all aware, the pandemic has changed how we interact with each other and has created uncertainty about the path forward for the foreseeable future. Because of our concern for everyone’s safety, we have reluctantly decided to cancel our September, 2020, golf outing. But at the same time, we are committed to continue our work with students which may be needed more now than before.
So today we are asking, in lieu of the outing, that you consider making a donation to the asbe Foundation if you are in a position to do so.We understand that this may be difficult given the economic situation that the pandemic has occasioned, but it’s a request we are making if you are in a position to do so. Our goal is to raise $10,000 to support the asbe Foundation for the coming year. We look forward to playing golf again next year! The activities that our Golf Outing funded last year, and your contribution would continue to support this year include:
Award eleven scholarships to college students involved in design and engineering studies.
Sponsor our Annual Awards Dinner where certificates and cash awards are made to at least sixteen high school students for their winning entries in our Design Challenge Competition. Conduct Workshops for high school instructors in preparation for the Design Challenge
Recognize a student for the outstanding creativity of their submission at the annual MITES statewide competition.
