Joy Comes from Giving
The principles upon which ASTEF was founded are based on charitable giving and meaningful use of monies received. Throughout ASTEF’s short existence many lives have been positively effected through scholarships, leadership seminars, and classroom projects which were made possible due to “gifts” received from our members and others.
“There is no greater joy than giving lasting gifts to others.”
“There is no greater honor than receiving a gift from the heart of a cheerful giver.”
ASTEF bestows gifts each year to Texas State Organization members and chapters. Those who receive scholarships or leadership training will use their learning to influence a diverse set of individuals and a cross-section of groups during their careers and beyond. Women aspiring to become educators benefit, too, with stipends given under the Aspiring Educator program. Chapters, individuals, area, or coordinating councils that receive project stipends have the potential to touch the hearts and make significant differences in the lives of many in their communities.
A gift to ASTEF is one sure way to leave footprints on the hearts of others through the heritage of ASTEF's charitable programs. Not only will you receive personal satisfaction from your donation, but your donation is tax deductible.
Is there someone you would like to honor with your donation? Why not consider a donation “in honor of” an associate, friend, or relative to tell them how much they mean to you? Donations can also be made “in memory of” a special friend, relative, colleague, etc. A gift to ASTEF is a gift that keeps on giving as it is used to support scholarships, leadership seminars and special events, and classroom or chapter projects that impact Texas educators and students.
Donations can be made by using the Donate Button or by sending your donation with the member contribution form found on the website to Headquarters at PO BOX 797787; Dallas 75379-7787.
Help share the joy of giving and feel good in the part you played in helping others!
