The ASPB Legacy Society, initiated in late 2016, will use income earned from donations to support ASPB’s 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. The Legacy Society is championed by the Legacy Society Leadership Committee and was launched by contributions from Founding Members who endowed the fund with a financial commitment of over half a million dollars. All of ASPB’s fundraising activities are governed by the Society’s Gift Acceptance Policy.
Legacy Society Founding Members
To acquaint ASPB’s members with the Founding Members of the Legacy Society, we have published short autobiographical descriptions of their careers. Link to a biography for any member whose name is highlighted in green. Within the bios, the link to a Founding Member’s Academic Family Tree shows individuals whose careers they nurtured, as well as those who nurtured them.
