A record number of contributors made the 2010 Annual Fund Drive the most successful ever. More than 700 ASA members contributed more than $34,000. These funds helped the ASA promote the practice and profession of statistics in several ways during 2010. Here are a few examples:

    The Census at School program was launched in the United States, promoting statistical literacy in grades 4–12.
    StatFest programs, hosted by ASA chapters, encouraged minority college students to pursue careers in statistics.
    The ASA provided several memberships to international statisticians, including a good-sized group from China.
    The ASA supported student travel awards.

The annual fund drive consists of two components. All members are provided the opportunity to make a contribution to the fund at the time of their membership renewal. About 625 people responded in this way, contributing more than $19,600. In addition, about 2,200 members of the ASA community were contacted by email. Targeted members included current and former board members, ASA Fellows, current and former Council of Sections Governing Board members and Council of Chapters Governing Board members, senior members, and longtime members. More than 80 people responded to this email, donating more than $14,400 in support of ASA activities.

The number of donors in each of the two components and the amounts given exceed previous years’ levels, pointing to extraordinary generosity on the part of the ASA membership. This generosity is particularly impressive given the great economic challenges of today.

“The ASA is an invaluable resource to the community of statisticians,” noted Marie Davidian of North Carolina State University. “Giving to the ASA allows me to acknowledge the association’s role in my professional growth and, much more importantly, help ensure that the ASA will continue to provide strong leadership in promoting our profession to the benefit of all of us for whom statistics is much more than just a career.”

Nick Horton of Smith College said “In addition to the time I invest as a volunteer, I give to the ASA because it works to promote the field of statistics. These efforts create educational and advocacy opportunities that let others know of how statistical methods can help address the complex problems that we face.”

“I consider ASA as my professional home,” observed Mingxiu Hu, a statistician for Millennium Pharmaceuticals. “ASA promotes the profession of statistics and statistical science, which makes my job as a statistician more visible and influential in the pharmaceutical industry. In return, I feel it’s my obligation to support ASA, both financially and by serving the organization as a volunteer, to ensure its continued success.”

“The ASA supports and promotes the use of statistics not just for statisticians, but for society as a whole,” said Margie Nemeth, a statistician at Monsanto. Through the annual fund, Nemeth says, she contributes to the success of the ASA and helps “ensure that future statisticians will have an organization which will provide them the opportunities/programs which they need.”

The 2011 annual fund drive will kick off in late spring, though members have the opportunity to contribute throughout the year when they renew their memberships. On behalf of the ASA and the Development Committee, thank you for your support.
