We have less than 30 days to meet our NASPA IV-W goals for the NASPA Foundation. The NASPA Foundation challenges each region with annual fundraising goals. Because of your past support and dedication, we have met these goals nearly every year, giving our region up to $1,000 to support research grants and graduate student travel to our Region’s conference. This year, our goal is to reach 100 donors and $18,000 in contributions. As of May 17, we need 12 more donors and $2,099 in gifts. To continue our successful trend, we ask your support by donating to the NASPA Foundation by June 30 at: https://www.naspa.org/foundation/make-a-gift
