Charitable Contributions to ASPT: Donor Restricted Funds

Contributions can be made to any of the restricted funds in two ways. If you designate your contribution to the core fund, your donation will be added to the total invested; in future years, it can incrementally increase the payout and eventually lead to either larger or more grant awards from the specified fund. If you designate your contribution to supplement earnings, the donation will have an immediate impact resulting in an increase of the amount available for grant awards from the specified named fund. If you would like to discuss making a large contribution, please feel free to contact the ASPT President, Pam Soltis, psoltis@flmnh.ufl.edu, to discuss your generous gift.

SHIRLEY AND ALAN GRAHAM GRADUATE STUDENT RESEARCH GRANT FUND. This fund was generously endowed by the Grahams in 2002 and represents the first dedicated ASPT student research grant fund.

WILLIAM R. ANDERSON GRADUATE STUDENT RESEARCH GRANT FUND. As the second dedicated ASPT student research grant fund, this fund was established in 2002 in honor of William R. Anderson through contributions from colleagues and former students.

ASPT ENDOWMENT FUND.

Charitable Contributions to ASPT: Other Named Funds

Your contributions to any of the ASPT funds listed below will have an immediate impact resulting in an increase in the amount available for the specified purpose of the named fund.



Contributions support masters and doctoral students conducting field work, herbarium travel, and/or laboratory research in any area of plant systematics. Every year we present 10-15 of these awards to promising young scientists.

The Asa Gray Award was established to recognize outstanding scientists for their contributions to plant systematic research. Your donation will help fund the costs associated with presenting this award.

Established in 1956, the George R. Cooley Award may be bestowed annually by the Society upon a botanist in the early stages of his/her career who is judged to have presented the best paper in plant systematics at the Annual Meeting. Members of ASPT who are graduate students or in their first year post conferral of the Ph.D. are eligible. Contributions to the George R. Cooley Award Fund are used to help pay for the honorarium given to the awardee and other award expenses.

This award fund was created in 2006 by Drs. Barbara D. Webster and Susan V. Webster to honor the work of their husband and father. The Grady L. Webster Award alternates between BSA (odd-numbered years) and ASPT (even-numbered years). In 2016, ASPT will present the next Grady L. Webster Plant Systematics Publication Award, recognizing the best published paper in Systematic Botany or Systematic Botany Monographs during 2014 and 2015. Your donation to this fund will be used to support this biennial award.

The Herbarium Emergency Fund may provide short-term financial assistance to support recovery efforts of herbaria affected by disasters (including but not limited to natural disasters and other threats to the retention or maintenance of collections).
