Giving Opportunities

Contributions can be designated as the following.

Annual Fund

The NACAS Foundation has been instrumental in funding programs and scholarships such as CASP (Certified Auxiliary Services Professional), Institute for Managers, and professional development webinars. Gifts to the Annual Fund will provide critical support for core programs — research, data, benchmarking and overall advancements in higher education and business partnerships. The NACAS Foundation has a goal of raising $500,000 to support the future of NACAS by the association’s 50th anniversary in 2018.

Endowment Fund
This endowed fund will help NACAS support research into key areas that are important to auxiliary services, as well as help fund the development of programs designed to respond to these needs.  The fund was established in 2008, as a way to recognize the NACAS 40th anniversary and help NACAS continue its focus on the future.

David H. Lord Award for Exemplary Community Service

This award recognizes auxiliary service leaders who have made a significant contribution in volunteer time, financial support, or gift in kind to a community service on a local, national, or international basis. This service needs to encourage active citizenship and leadership by students and staff to step up and make needed changes on our campuses and in our communities.

Hassmiller CASP Scholarship

The Hassmiller CASP Scholarship provides a grant to CASP applicants who meet multiple criteria, including paying for the full application fee from their personal funds.

Mereese Ladson Diversity Scholarship

The Mereese Ladson Diversity Scholarship is intended to promote the advancement of diverse, career-minded higher education professionals and to enhance their auxiliary services skill and knowledge base through NACAS professional development programs.


Thank you to all of our individual donors!

Conference Fundraisers

Participate in conference events to support the Foundation

Various fundraisers are held during the NACAS annual conference and at the NACAS regional conferences.  The success of these events is due to the generous support of our business partners and those who participate in these events.  Below are some events in which you can participate to support the work of the NACAS Foundation:


Here’s your chance to win a prize and donate to a worthy cause!  The Flip-A-Coin fundraiser will be held at the upcoming NACAS regional conferences as well as at C3X 2017 in Colorado Springs, CO.  How does it work?  After “purchasing” a special bead necklace, eligible participants stand and are asked to put one hand on either their “head” or their “tail.”  A coin is flipped, and participants whose choice of “head” or “tail” matches the coin flip remain standing.  The process repeats until one person remains standing.  A prize, typically donated by one of the NACAS business partners, is given to the winner.  Proceeds from the “sale” of the bead necklaces help support the work of the NACAS Foundation.

Silent Auction

The Silent Auction will again be held at C3X 2017 in Colorado Springs, CO.  Numerous items are typically donated to the Silent Auction by business partners as well as NACAS members and the NACAS regions.  The items are then auctioned at the NACAS Annual Conference.  Last year, almost $21,000 was raised at the 16th Annual NACAS Foundation Raffle and Silent Auction.  Numerous items including iPads, cameras, e-Readers, iPods, and conference registrations were donated by dozens of business partners, over a dozen NACAS members, and each NACAS region.

Annual Conference Events

In 2016, more than $20,000 was raised from the annual golf tournament and the inaugural bowling event at the NACAS Annual Conference in Indianapolis.  This year’s Foundation event will be taking place immediately following the annual conference’s Opening Reception. Tune into the schedule page for more details coming soon. Proceeds help support the work of the NACAS Foundation.
