In order to fulfill its mission, the Appalachian Studies Association must be able to sustain itself for years to come. In order to meet this challenge, the Finance and Development Committee is working on developing an endowment, and $5,000 must be raised to do this.
In 2008, ASA President Shaunna Scott challenged past ASA presidents to help meet this goal. We now ask that every ASA member consider helping the ASA in making this crucial step in securing the organization’s future. Gifts may be made in any amount in honor or in memory of anyone. The name of the honoree will be listed on this page.
In addition, the ASA has and will continue the Endowment campaign at the 2011 Conference brunch on Sunday, March 13, 2011. Donors place their gift in a large pink “piggy” bank, and in gratitude the pig “kisses” them. Remember to help feed the pink pig!
