What is a Friendraiser?

Can’t make it to one of ASAE’s signature fundraising events but still want to support our mission? Volunteers and co-hosts across the country have found creative ways to give back to the ASAE Research Foundation in “friendraisers.” From a roast honoring past chair Peter J. O’Neil to luncheons and cocktail parties, friendraisers can take many forms and are a great way for current donors to share their passion for the foundation’s work with their network.

summer fest 2019

Join us for ASAE Research Foundation Summer Fest! There are many opportunities to attend an industry event this summer, but only one event like this.

ASAE Research Foundation Summer Fest is hosted by Washington Marriott Wardman Park. Enjoy networking around the Wardman Park’s East Lawn, where you can become one with nature in a downtown setting. ASAE Foundation Summer Fest will feature plenty of food, games, drinks, entertainment, and much more.

The best part is the support you’ll provide the ASAE Research Foundation: 100 percent of the proceeds will benefit the foundation’s industry-leading research. So join us to share in the fun and celebrate summer with colleagues in a relaxed environment.
