Did you know that St. Louis ASHRAE has an Endowed Research Fund in honor of Presidential Member Bill Coad? This fund was created last year through the ASHRAE Foundation, which guarantees a set 5% annual return.
ASHRAE Foundation supports the needs of the HVAC&R industry. ASHRAE Foundation is an endowed trust that provides funding for professional development and research programs, supplies qualified engineering students with much needed scholarship assistance, and ensures that ASHRAE will continue to have sufficient resources to sustain and expand the Society’s vital work.
The creation of ASHRAE Foundation was in response to a valid need for increased funding for ASHRAE programs and projects. A solid proponent of education, the Foundation recognizes and accepts the challenge to provide the financial support necessary to offer tailored educational programming to ensure HVAC&R professionals are prepared today for tomorrow’s challenges.
