Establish a Safety Fund

Aug 19, 2015

Donors can establish a named academic scholarship or professional education grant fund through the ASSP Foundation. Scholarships and grants advance the safety profession and provide national recognition for the donor. The Foundation manages the administrative details of this program and works with the donor to provide qualified award recipients each year.

Visionary Fund

The ASSP Foundation can administer a Visionary Scholarship/Grant Program where funds are invested in the Foundation’s portfolio. The goal is to keep your principle intact over time, depending on the investment results of the Foundation’s portfolio. This type of fund is ideal for the donor who wants their scholarship/grant to last over a long period of time and has the cash to fund such a program.

Advocate Fund

The ASSP Foundation can administer an Advocate Scholarship/Grant Program where the donor contributes enough to cover the amount of the scholarship and the administrative fee for a one year period or more. These funds do not earn interest and are paid out to the recipient during the next scholarship cycle(s). This type of award suits the donor who does not want to establish a Visionary scholarship/grant
