Miscellaneous donations will be used where needed most as determined by the ASPT Treasurer. .
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, Eric Roalson, firstname.lastname@example.org, to discuss your generous gift.
