Founding Legacy Society Members
The ASPB Legacy Society, launched in late 2016, will use dividend income earned on donations to support professional and student-centered programs and activities. The primary goal is to nurture future generations of plant biologists and, thereby, ensure the health and longevity of the Society.
A small cohort of current and former society leaders, listed below, launched the Legacy Society as Founding Members, each making a contribution of at least $5,000. Thanks to these individuals’ contributions and those of other generous ASPB members, we have already secured commitments of over half a million dollars. These funds have been invested and will continue to grow until the time of ASPB’s centennial meeting in 2024, at which time the dividends generated will start to be used in support of the society’s good works.
To acquaint the membership with the Founding Members, we are publishing short biographical descriptions. Link to a biography for any member whose name is highlighted in green.
