ASAE Foundation advances association
and nonprofit leadership
As an association leader, every day you're asked to take on more, to stretch your thinking and your resources, and to lead your organization and members through times of unprecedented change. Information is flowing at exponentially faster rates but who has time to sift through it all? How to do you know which answers will sustain your organization and propel your growth? That's where the ASAE Foundation comes in. We work tirelessly in the areas below to help you manage the challenges and opportunities of today — and of the future.
- Research: We identify critical trends by conducting research no one organization can undertake on its own. You expect the best, and to deliver the highest degrees of credibility and impact we partner with leading colleges and universities, top research and consulting firms, and other organizations in the nonprofit space on key issues that drive associations forward.
- Leadership: With the first wave of baby boomers soon set to retire, building the next generation of associations is more critical than ever. The ASAE Foundation invests in programs and individuals that will help bridge the upcoming leadership gap to help keep your association relevant and innovative.
- Community: Success doesn't happen in a vacuum. Through both education and networking events we bring the passionate and inspiring community of the ASAE Foundation together to inspire each other and catch a glimpse of the greatness we can create.
- Communication: Spreading the key findings of our research and programs is critical to enabling more data-driven decision-making in associations. Our new groundWORK e-newsletter distributes three times a year and shares foundation news, research updates, donor testimonials, grant/award application information, and real stories of how donors use our research to drive their organizations. firstname.lastname@example.org.
The ASAE Foundation can only continue to pursue an aggressive research and leadership agenda through the support and commitment of association professionals like you. Your contribution ensures we're able to continue finding insights that advance associations.
