    Each year, the ASA takes a significant step toward promoting the practice and profession of statistics by hosting Giving Day. It’s a day when members and friends of the ASA come together to make a lasting impact. This Giving Day, we invite you to contribute so the ASA can continue to provide programs leading to a world that relies on data and statistical thinking to drive discovery and inform decisions.
