  • Support the ASA’s mission to promote the practice and profession of statistics
  • Create endowments to generate income that provides for the development of ASA programs and initiatives
  • Create or support current awards and scholarships
  • Leave a lasting legacy through recognition and membership in the 1839 Society

It's never too early to start planning for the future and the legacy you want to leave.
