The ASPB Legacy Society

The ASPB Legacy Society, initiated in late 2016, provides financial support for Society activities that foster professional and student-centered programs and activities. Its primary goal is to nurture future generations of plant biologists and, thereby, ensure the health and longevity of the Society. The Society, led by the Legacy Society Leadership Committee, was launched with contributions from Founding Members who endowed the fund with a financial commitment of over half a million dollars. Also shown (by #) are individuals whose cumulative contributions have reached or exceeded $5,000, since 2020, and anyone whose cumulative donations to ASPB reach or exceed $5,000 is considered a member of the Legacy Society. All of ASPB’s fundraising activities are governed by the Society’s Gift Acceptance Policy.

Legacy Society Members

To acquaint ASPB’s members with the Members of the Legacy Society, names highlighted in green are linked to short autobiographies describing their careers. Within the bios is a link to the Member’s Academic Family Tree (if they provided one), which shows individuals whose careers they nurtured, as well as those who nurtured them.
