Endowment Fund Donor Update – Create the Future

Ruth Hull, SETAC North America Endowment Fund Chair

It’s simple arithmetic:

  • Cost of a one-day ticket for one person at Disney Florida’s Magic Kingdom in November ~ $110
  • Cost of a round of golf at the Rosen Shingle Creek Golf Club ~ $125
  • Cost to help SETAC North America meet the Herb Ward Challenge ~ $40 a year for four years
  • Meeting the Herb Ward Challenge by the SETAC North America 40th Annual Meeting in 2019 = PRICELESS!

Both big and small contributions will help us meet our goal of growing the SETAC North America Endowment Fund to $400,000 by the SETAC North America 40th Annual Meeting in 2019! We are now at $235,000.

Visit the SETAC North America Endowment Fund booth in the exhibit hall at the upcoming 7th SETAC World Congress/SETAC North America 37th Annual Meeting from 6–10 November in Orlando, Florida, and let us know if you like what we are currently funding (read some of the testimonials on the fund’s web page). In addition, we will have a poster board available where you can write down your ideas on what we could fund in the future. As the fund grows, we would like to know your ideas for how we can use the proceeds.

Please help us grow the fund and make your ideas a reality. Create the future! If every regular SETAC North America member gave $40 a year, we’d meet our goal. Look for a donor card being distributed at the Sunday night reception in Orlando, or pick one up at the Endowment Fund booth. You could also donate now, as part of your Orlando registration, or anytime!
