This fund was generously endowed by the Grahams in 2002 and represents the first dedicated ASPT student research grant fund. Your contribution to the Shirley and Alan Graham Graduate Student Research Grant Fund will supplement the earnings from this fund and will directly benefit ASPT graduate students by maximizing the amount of money Council can spend on research grants.

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. Your contribution to the William R. Anderson Graduate Student Research Grant Fund will supplement the earnings from this fund and will directly benefit ASPT graduate students by maximizing the amount of money Council can spend on research grants.

Created in 2004 through contributions from his colleagues and former students, this student research grant fund honors Rogers McVaugh's dedicated, exceptional career. Your contribution to the Rogers McVaugh Graduate Student Research Grant Fund will supplement the earnings from this fund and will directly benefit ASPT graduate students by maximizing the amount of money Council can spend on research grants.

Announced in 2011 and created through contributions from his colleagues, former students, and the ASPT Council, this student research grant fund honors W. Hardy Eshbaugh’s dedication to mentoring students. Your contribution to the W. Hardy Eshbaugh Graduate Student Research Grant Fund will supplement the earnings from this fund and will directly benefit ASPT graduate students by maximizing the amount of money Council can spend on research grants.

Contributions support students (both master's and doctoral levels) conducting field work, herbarium travel, and/or laboratory research in any area of plant systematics. Every year we present 10-15 of these grants to promising young scientists. Your contribution to the General Graduate Student Research Grant Fund will supplement other ASPT resources and will directly benefit ASPT graduate students by maximizing the amount of money Council can spend on research grants.

The Asa Gray medal was established to recognize outstanding scientists for their contributions to systematics research. Your contribution to the Asa Gray Award Fund will help pay for the medal and associated award expenses.

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 will provide short-term financial assistance to support recovery efforts of herbaria affected by disasters (e.g., including but not limited to natural disasters and other threats to the retention or maintenance of collections).

Major Gifts:

We also welcome and encourage your generous donations to the ASPT General Fund and the permanently restricted ASPT Endowment Fund.

ASPT General Fund
Gifts to the ASPT General Fund are exceptionally valuable to the Society. These unrestricted gifts are deposited in the ASPT investment account and can be drawn on by the Council to help pay for any of the wide range of initiatives that your Society engages in to promote plant systematics. A healthy General Fund helps to insulate ASPT from the volatile journal subscription revenue stream and other unanticipated financial challenges that professional societies face today.

ASPT Endowment Fund
The ASPT Endowment Fund is a permanently restricted fund that generates income that is used to support special Society initiatives, such as travel to meetings, workshops, and publications. Your generous contribution to the ASPT Endowment Fund benefits ASPT members and the plant systematics community by increasing the size of the endowment, which in turn increases the earnings that we can spend in support of Society initiatives. Because the payout percentage for endowment funds is 5%, we prefer that gifts to the endowment are at least $1,000.

If you are interested in giving to either of these funds, please contact the ASPT President (Mark Fishbein, mark.fishbein@okstate.edu) to discuss your generous gift.
