Donations

As a professional association, we provide everything our members need in order to advance in their careers:
  • Training and webinars for continuing education
  • Online courses and printed materials
  • Annual educational conferences
  • Networking opportunities
  • Providing programs and resources
Today, our biggest challenge is to find the funds needed for supporting the future of the profession. It is our hope that through our association, we can provide healthy environments, protected communities, and empowered professionals.

Donations will be used in any way our association sees fit, while aligning primarily with the paradigm that it would be building, sustaining, and empowering an effective environmental health workforce.

As a nonprofit, we depend on the support of members and donors to reach our mission. Your generous donations continue to support and encourage us to keep evolving for the profession. We are tremendously grateful for our donors' support.

Our Funds

Scholarship Fund

The purpose of the NEHA/AAS Scholarship Program is to encourage students to indulge in an early commitment to a career in environmental health as well as to inspire past and present graduates to pursue postgraduate studies in environmental health sciences. This program offers financial assistance to individuals with an evident need and serves to introduce adequately trained professionals into the environmental health workforce. In previous years, students who demonstrated the highest levels of achievement in their respective environmental health degree programs were awarded $5,000 directly from this fund.

Your donation empowers us to continuously award this scholarship to exceptional students who have a passion for environmental health and supports the next generation of environmental health professionals.

Endowment Fund

The Endowment Foundation was established to enable us to do more for the environmental health community than its annual budget might allow. Our association was founded upon the belief that professionals who were both educated and motivated would make the greatest strides in creating healthful environments and search for the finest solutions. The donations received for this fund are invested with the intent that it will continue to grow, ensuring that these funds will one day be used to enhance and empower the environmental health profession, in turn, amplifying your contributions.

During the AEC, we hold a meeting for the Endowment Foundation Committee to gather and discuss where the fund stands and if there is a special project or program to finance from its contributions. These projects could be anything from financing a member in need to enable them to attend a special event like the AEC or a larger funding for a project in partnership with another organization that is outside of our normal budget.

These special projects and programs rely on the generosity of donors to support and encourage the environmental health profession. Individuals who have made monetary contributions to the Endowment Foundation are listed on the Special Recognition of Our Supporters, as well as in the Journal of Environmental Health. Your contributions are totaled and the club you are listed in depends on the amount you have contributed in your history with NEHA.

There are six clubs and with each club comes a prize or potential for a prize—anything from your name listed in the Journal for a year, to a chance to win a free registration to the AEC. This recognition is our way of thanking those for their continued contributions as returning supporters.
