New Way to Donate:  Receiving Honorarium?

Why not consider this unique new way to support the Foundation:  If you are speaking at a conference and receiving honorarium from a company, direct your honorarium to the Research and Education Foundation.  We will handle the process for you.  Simply request the honorarium to be paid out to the Foundation and have the company contact Colleen Elkins, Foundation Director, at [email protected].  In addition, the company, should they chose, will receive recognition of their support on the Foundation website.  It is quick and easy, and a wonderful way to help us grow the Foundation!
