KEYS Campaign Update In early 2015, the ASABE Foundation kicked off the KEYS campaign, a targeted program focused on student development and humanitarian outreach. During the Annual International Meeting in New Orleans, the Foundation sponsored several fundraising activities with proceeds going to the KEYS campaign. Thanks to your generous support, nearly $8,000 was raised, bringing the YTD total to $62,000—steady and encouraging progress toward our fiveyear goal of $500,000. The KEYS campaign is every member’s opportunity to ensure that agricultural and biological engineers continue to make a difference for years to come. KEYS funds will be made available to Society projects that educate youth about careers in agricultural and biological engineering and technology, to projects that motivate and build leadership among students while encouraging innovation, and to projects that help ensure that the expertise of our profession reaches those most in need of its benefits. A contribution to the KEYS campaign is an important way to support our profession and its future. Ag and bio engineers can have great impact on a growing world that needs more food, energy, and renewable resources. Increased financial support will sustain and enhance our professional future, enabling the influence that we can have. The Foundation will use KEYS funds to support KEYS-based programs of the Society. Like all contributions to the Foundation, your support for the KEYS campaign is fully tax-deductible. Please consider contributing to this important campaign before year end. Your membership invoice will contain a donation allocation line where you can specify a donation to KEYS or other Foundation funds, or consider sending a contribution directly to: ASABE Foundation KEYS Campaign 2950 Niles Road St Joseph, MI 49085-9659 USA Contact Darrin Drollinger (email@example.com; phone 269-932-7007) or visit www.asabe.org/foundation.
