ASSE Foundation History
Recognizing growth in the profession, as well as a need for even more comprehensive services, the ASSE Board of Directors chartered the ASSE Foundation in 1990. Designed to provide professional development and financial resources to qualified individuals and non-profit organizations, the Foundation seeks to advance safety and health development, research and education in the public interest.
The ASSE Foundation receives contributions from corporations, individual members and ASSE Chapters Regions interested in supporting the safety, health and environmental profession.
The Foundation is exempt from taxation under Section 501(C)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code (IRC). Generally, contributions to the ASSE Foundation are considered charitable contributions under IRC Section 170 and are tax deductible as provided by law. Please consult your tax advisor with any questions.
