The American Society of Association Executives defines an association as, "An organization or group of individuals affiliated with one another who share a common purpose, interest, or mission and exist for the mutual enrichment and advancement of their membership". “That’s a very nice concept,” we might say, “It rolls off the tongue easily,” and “We might even use it if we can remember it”.
#GivingTuesday is a world-wide day of giving fueled by the power of collaboration and social media. Celebrated this year on Tuesday, November 27 following Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the season of giving by tuning the minds of the world community towards donating to the charities nearest and dearest to their hearts and minds.
The organizers of the Great Meadow International have generously offered to support the upcoming USEA Online Auction by donating two VIP tickets and two nights at the Red Fox Inn and Tavern in Middleburg, Virginia for the weekend of July 6-8.
#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving and is recognized as the day when the world community turns its mind to donating to the charity closest to their hearts and minds. By supporting the USEA Foundation Roger Haller Fund for the Education of Eventing Officials you can help us “double our impact” and meet the challenge set this year by our wonderful anonymous donor who has set excellence in eventing education as a top priority.
The USEA and the USEA Foundation are thrilled to announce that an anonymous donor has put forward a $25,000 challenge and is inviting you to join in supporting the education of our eventing officials by matching the donation. Your gift can help the USEA raise $50,000 to guarantee the U.S. has a large pool of well-trained judges, technical delegates, and course designers from which to draw in the coming years.
The USEA is pleased to share the lineup of incredible items that will be be up for auction during the 2016 USEA Annual Meeting and Convention. You won’t want to miss any of these very generous donations, from entries to apparel to destination vacations! Proceeds from the Silent Auction will benefit the Roger Haller Educational Fund, which was created earlier this year to expand educational programs for judges, technical delegates, course designers, instructors and volunteers.
This summer, the United States Eventing Association (USEA) began using the mobile fundraising software MobileCause. Because a large portion of USEA members are constantly on the go, MobileCause allows the USEA to communicate instantly and directly with members through text message.
