This has been a very good year for contributions to the AAPG Foundation.
To date, contributions received by the AAPG Foundation have surpassed 2011 gifts by nearly $400,000 – donors responded overwhelmingly to the 45th anniversary mailing from Foundation Chairman Bill Fisher asking for a renewed interest in the Foundation.
Funds that top the list for largest donations this month are the Visiting Geoscientists Fund, the General Fund, the Distinguished Lecture Fund, the Education Fund and various Named Grant-in-Aid funds.
Gifts to the Foundation enable continued support of many fantastic endeavors, and your support is so appreciated.
The AAPG Foundation Trustee Associates welcomes another new member: Priscilla Grew, of Lincoln, Neb.
Grew, a former director of the California Department of Conservation and of the Minnesota Geological Survey, is director of the University of Nebraska State Museum.
