Mark your Calendars: November 28th,2023 is Giving Tuesday!

The ASFPM Foundation continues to change lives and provide opportunities to develop young men and women into leaders who will strengthen our profession and guide the future of flood risk management. In 2018, the ASFPM Foundation awarded its first Future Leaders Scholarship (FLS), which was a direct result of the generosity of our donors.

Esme NelsonSince then, two additional recipients were awarded the FLS through a rigorous application and selection process. Our current FLS recipient, Esme Nelson, is a second-year student at Gonzaga University in Washington State where she is a civil engineering student. At the 2022 ASFPM National Conference, the ASFPM Foundation announced it will fund a second FLS beginning in 2023 to the tune of $20,000 per year. Where we offered the FLS every other year, we now are able to offer it every year – this is exciting news!

Giving Tuesday

The ASFPM Foundation wants to help other undergraduate students achieve their dreams of becoming a flood risk management professional through our participation in Giving Tuesday. Again this year, all donations we receive on Giving Tuesday will be directed to the Future Leaders Scholarship fund, with a goal of $40,000. We ask that you mark your calendars and consider making a donation so that we not only meet, but exceed our goal. Information on how to donate can be found on the Foundation website.

Here are some additional Giving Tuesday "fun facts”…

  • Giving Tuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea that encourages people to do good; it’s an opportunity for people around the world to use their individual power of generosity to remain connected to, and supportive of their communities, however they choose to define it.
  • Giving Tuesday is held every year on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving; this year it’s November 28, 2023.
  • The use of social media helps to "force multiply” the message: Nonprofits use social media to tell their stories and inspire donors to give; donors use their social media to share why they give and encourage their friends, families, and colleagues to follow suit.
  • Over 70 percent of people who choose to donate on Giving Tuesday typically give $10 to $20 to their nonprofit of choice, and only give on Giving Tuesday.
