The ASEA-Central Education Foundation currently accepts donations from residents of Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan, Indiana and Iowa.
ASEA-CEF is establishing a way for members and friends who would like to contribute to the education foundation in honor of or in memory of the recipient(s) or events of your choice. Many have contributed significantly to this organization, and we want to provide a way to recognize both the donors and those to whom they are paying tribute.
Donation FAQs and Answers
Education Foundation Donations
A tribute gift is a gift made in recognition of a person or an event. At ASEA-CEF we use the term tribute gift to refer to both honor and memorial gifts. Memorial gifts are made in remembrance of someone who has passed away. All other types of tribute gifts, such as gifts made in celebration of special events or as expressions of gratitude for PSIA-AASI Central members, are referred to as honor gifts.
In the Central Line magazine, Tributes will be listed “in honor of” or “in memory of”, the person or event, and the name of the donor. Anonymous donors shall be so noted.
Checks must be made payable to “ASEA – Central Education Foundation” and sent to PSIA-AASI Central, PO Box 456, Highland, MI 48357. If you are making a Tribute donation, please send a completed tribute-giving form along with your check. You can also make a donation using our on-line donation form.
If you send one combined gift, ASEA-CEF will legally be able to provide only one tax receipt to just one legal donor. By asking others to give directly to ASEA-CEF, we will provide all donors with charitable giving receipts for their tax purposes. We will notify you when gifts are made.
How will I know if someone has made a gift in memory of my loved one or in honor of my fundraising, personal or event efforts?
You can ask to be notified. On request, ASEA-CEF will send a notification letter by your preferred method (postal mail or email).
Notification letters will provide the names and addresses (if available) of all individuals who make tribute gifts. To protect the privacy of our donors, we do not provide individual gift amounts. Upon request we will provide the total amount given by all donors.
Philanthropic gifts support ASEA-CEF’s research, education, scholarship, and community program efforts. When you give, you are helping to develop innovative programs and deliver high-quality instruction to instructors in the PSIA-AASI Central Division and across the Midwest. You are also contributing to making instruction affordable and available to all members and program participants.
I want others to make tribute gifts to ASEA-CEF. What information should I provide to the Office at PSIA-AASI Central Division??
To ensure that gifts are processed quickly and allocated appropriately and that timely gift receipts, acknowledgments and notifications can be sent, you should provide the following basic information to the PSIA-AASI Central Division office:
- Notification Recipient — Who should be notified when gifts are made?
- Tribute Name — In whose honor or memory are gifts being made?
- Gift Allocation — All gifts are to the General Fund.
- You can also request printed donation forms for easy giving.
At this time, all Tribute and general donations go to the ASEA-CEF General Fund.
