Make a Contribution to the Meat Science Community
Keith Belk, Chairman, AMSA Educational Foundation Board of Trustees

Your continuing generosity of donations to the AMSA Educational Foundation and time and effort to AMSA programs and activities is very much appreciated. Since RMC, the Foundation Trustees have approved new mentor recognition funds and kicked off the Century Club program. The Trustees encourage you to join us in recognizing the legacy of these individuals by your generous donation to fully fund each of the mentor funds.

Since its launch in 2002, the AMSA Educational Foundation has made significant progress in providing support for AMSA programs and helping to launch new initiatives. Your support will allow the Foundation to continue to provide:

  • Recognition of meat scientists that will elevate our discipline and profession
  • Support for students pursuing educational opportunities in meat science
  • Leadership development for young meat scientists; and
  • Educational programs that enrich careers and build bridges with those outside the scientific community.

Please take a moment to visit foundation.meatscience.org  or call 217-356-5370 to learn more or to pledge support. There are a total of 20 mentor recognition funds at AMSA as well as general funds for student programs, publications and meetings. For more information and to donate online visit http://www.meatscience.org/foundation.

Checks made out to the “AMSA Foundation” may be mailed to the following address – please write the name of the mentor fund on the memo line.
