ASDSO's Giving Program is your opportunity to invest in the goals of ASDSO; to bring about real improvement in the safety of dams and to support the continuing professional development of dam safety professionals.Be assured that your contributions go toward the advancement of dam safety including support for:
- Continuing education programs for dam safety professionals
- Communications including the ASDSO technical journal, On-line Forums and E-News
- The information resource center & inquiry services
- Public & dam owner awareness and media education
- Undergraduate scholarships and student outreach
This year ASDSO especially needs your help. For only the second time in 25 years, FEMA has pulled its funding for ASDSO's training program. ASDSO wants to continue its successful training program and many other important projects, but may not be able to do that without your help. Because of the loss of FEMA funding, ASDSO has set a very lofty fundraising goal of $300,000. In order to reach our goal, we are initiating a challenge to each state to see which can generate the most funding support before the end of the year. (ASDSO won't be offering a prize to the state with the most donations - just bragging rights.)
As of now, Pennsylvania is the top donor state. Help your state catch up by donating now. Thank you to our members who have already contributed this year!
Take advantage of these new opportunities to support ASDSO and dam safety by making a tax-deductible gift to ASDSO. ASDSO is an educational/charitable organization exempt from taxation under the 501(c)(3) code of the Internal Revenue Service. Contributions to the Patrons Program are deductible as charitable contributions for federal income tax purposes up to 94% of the total gift.
