Sara Mata, NASPA IV-W Foundation Ambassador
February 28, 2018
Since the beginning of the NASPA Foundation Ambassadors in 2013, Region IV-W members have generously supported by giving over $61,000! I am thrilled to have witnessed reaching the donor and dollar goals set by the Foundation almost every year and know we are on the road to achieving our goals for 2017-2018.
Gifts of every size come back to the profession in scholarships, grants and awards. As of January, IV-W has reached 80% (80 of 100) of our donor goals and 64% ($11,459 of $18,000) of our dollar goal. Have you made your donation yet? Please contribute to help the Region meet both its donor and dollar goals. In addition, not only does your donation go to support the Region goals, you can also designate your funds to support a NASPA initiative or Knowledge Community. Please take a moment now to make your pledge: https://interland3.donorperfect.net/weblink/weblink.aspx?name=naspa&id=7
Look for the NASPA Foundation in Philadelphia and help us kick-off NASPA’s 100th celebration at the Annual Conference. The Foundation Booth will be located next to the Exhibit Hall Monday 8-5 and Tuesday 8-2. Stop by to play Plinko, purchase buttons, and participate in the Foundation raffles with drawings for Regional and Annual Conference Registration.
I look forward to seeing many of you in Philadelphia. This March I complete my tenure as the Region IV-W Foundation Ambassador. It has been an honor to have served in this role, allowing me to continuously nudge you to consider #NASPAgives these past 5 years. I know Region IV-W is in good hands with your current Ambassador David Adams, truly one of the most genuine souls I know. With Mr. Adams leadership, I know he and his soon to be named counterpart, will continue to guide you as the NASPA Foundation continues to evolve, leading the organization to support initiatives, research and programs for the membership. Thank you again for all your support and truly making my time as Foundation Ambassador for Region IV-W a tremendous honor.
