With the creation of new Endowment Funds, Dr. Fowler hopes to support early-career toxicologists, preparing them to influence public health research and decision-making.
The Endowment Fund was established in 2006 to aid in achieving the Society’s strategic objectives by providing stable, long-term financial support that complements revenues from dues and other sources.
This summer, thanks to the generous SOT Diversity Initiatives Endowment Career Development Award, I attended the American Chemical Society 256th National Meeting and Exposition in Boston, MA. The theme of this year’s conference was “Nanoscience, Nanotechnology, and Beyond.”
On behalf of the Endowment Fund Board, I am delighted to report that in just the last two months donations to various Endowment Funds have totaled more than $60,000. SOT is fortunate to have members who are generous with their financial support.
In addition to numerous endowed funds administered by various component groups of the Society, there are three SOT Mission Funds administered by SOT Council that support activities and awards consonant with the Society’s strategic plan. Today’s topic is the Global Activities Fund.
