Association of State Floodplain Managers Foundation
Save the Date: GivingTuesday is Nov. 29
It is almost that time again. What time, do you ask? Time to get ready for the largest global day of generosity. So mark your calendars because #GivingTuesday this year is on November 29!
2022 has brought the promise of fewer challenges and more progress towards a brighter future. That makes #GivingTuesday a great time to help the ASFPM Foundation fund its Future Leaders Scholarship and provide an opportunity to up-and-coming floodplain management professionals who can help shape the future of flood risk management.
In 2018 ASFPM Foundation awarded its first Future Leaders Scholarship (FLS). Since then, the ASFPM Foundation has awarded two more FLS with the most recent recipient Esme Nelson who attends Gonzaga University in Washington State. At the ASFPM National Conference, the ASFPM Foundation announced it will fund a second FLS beginning in 2023.
We want to help others achieve their flood risk management professional dreams, so this year like last, all funds raised on #GivingTuesday will be directed to the ASFPM Foundation Future Leaders Scholarship Fund.
As an added incentive, our corporate sponsor Dewberry has generously offered to match dollar-for-dollar the first $3,000 in donations given to ASFPM Foundation on #GivingTuesday.
Please consider donating $10, $20, $50 or more on #GivingTuesday, and then take to Twitter and share your reasons for giving. Be sure to include our Twitter handle @ASFPMFoundation; you can also tell everyone to text FLOODS to (877) 678-1487 or visit www.asfpmfoundation.org/give-now and encourage them to donate.
The 2022 Future Leaders Scholarship application period is now open! Help us raise awareness of this important opportunity by sharing it with your network.
