Giving Circles

The donors in ASAE Research Foundation Giving Circles make our research endeavors possible, allow us to support and pursue innovation in the field, and develop the leaders of today and tomorrow. These supporters have achieved great things in their association careers and choose to give back to the community with their contributions to the ASAE Research Foundation. By pledging significant amounts over a span of years, they allow the foundation to plan for the future and continuously expand our opportunities to advance association management. We honor the contributions of our Leadership Society and Legacy Society members by recognizing them in events and publications throughout the year.
