7.What You Can Do
Q: Why is the challenge all about Safety Matters donations?
A: We appreciate all donations and understand some donors have their favorite programs. But this year we are celebrating 25 years, and we want to celebrate all our programs, all our work, all our success stories. Safety Matters funds the whole package, from start-up funds for new initiatives (like the Family Scholarship Fund) to maintaining cherished programs (like our scholarships and grants) to the investments in technology that make them all run smoother. Our first 25 years were made possible by Safety Matters and we will invest in the next 25 with your gifts to Safety Matters.
Q: Is there a minimum donation amount?
A: We encourage you to donate $25 in honor of the Foundation’s 25th, or better yet, $50 in honor of the first 25 years and $25 in expectation for the next 25. That said, we are sincerely grateful for any amount you can give and every donation will count toward your region’s participation rate.
Q: What are “Foundation Bucks” and what can they used for?
A: The top three Regions will receive “Foundation Bucks”, which can be used toward Foundation programs in your Region. The RVPs from the winning Regions will decide how to allocate the funds to best support ASSE members in those Regions.
