Thank You, 2016 Donors

1 February 2017 104 views No Comment

Every year since 2009—when the ASA began its membership giving campaigns—ASA members have broken the fundraising record set the previous year. It has happened again! In 2016, a total of just about $163,000 was raised in support of ASA programs. That is nearly a 15% increase over 2015’s total of close to $142,000.

The signature focus of this year’s membership giving campaign was to raise awareness and funds for ASA education programs. Each month during the fall, we highlighted a different story that showed the impact these programs and services have on individual members, students, and society in general.

In December, two anonymous Google statisticians offered to match all member donations in support of the education campaign up to $10,000. In just under two weeks, ASA members answered the call and raised a total of $20,000! By the end of the campaign in mid December, more than $50,000 was raised for education programs. Well done, ASA members!

This year, we are looking forward to communicating more about the work the ASA is doing to support statistics education, public engagement and statistical literacy, professional development and mentoring of young professionals, and advocating for the statistics profession. We will bring you more personal member stories that will show you the difference you are making through your financial contributions. And we will continue to make improvements to the donation process based on valuable feedback we get from our member donors.

Thank you to everyone who made 2016 another successful year!
