Giving back makes a difference.
Support the advancement of the security profession with your gift.
The role of the security practitioner has evolved in scope and stature as organizations move toward global operations and an enterprise- wide approach to risk mitigation and management. The protection of people, property, and information is central to the fulfillment of an organization’s mission and the achievement of its business objectives.
Now, more than ever, security practitioners must continue to strengthen their knowledge, skills, and abilities. Professional, strategic security leadership is critical to the long-term success of private and public organizations around the world. The ASIS Foundation, the charitable education affiliate of ASIS International, is dedicated to the advancement of the security profession and the professional. Your charitable contribution to the Foundation will directly support:
The work of the Foundation is supported solely by voluntary contributions from donors who share its vision. The support of individuals, ASIS chapters, and other organizations make it possible for the Foundation to provide educational opportunities and vital research to enhance the security profession.
Scholarships and Awards
Enabling security professionals to realize the highest academic achievements
Annually, the Foundation presents scholarships and awards to ASIS chapters, members, and students around the world to ensure those pursuing a security management career are able to realize their academic and professional goals.
Increasing effectiveness and efficiency in security management
In the area of research, the Foundation’s primary objective is to conduct timely, security-related studies of contemporary threats, best practices, and regulations. The topics researched by the Foundation produce valuable and actionable knowledge for the security profession.
Giving to the Foundation
Substantial resources are needed to support the Foundation’s many programs and activities. Your support is critical to our ongoing ability to provide leading-edge research and educational awards.
It’s easy to support the Foundation’s work. You can make an online contribution, check the "additional gift to the Foundation" box on your membership renewal form, or mail a donation in the attached mailer. While a $25 or $50 donation may not seem significant, with more than 37,000 members worldwide of ASIS International, the collective potential is phenomenal.
ASIS chapter gifts are traditionally made once a year in advance of the ASIS International Annual Seminar and Exhibits. All chapters who make a donation are acknowledged on the website and honored during the Seminar.
Corporate contributions allow organizations of all sizes to align their mission with the important work of the Foundation, demonstrate a commitment to the advancement of the security profession, and provide direct support to awards, scholarships, and research. In addition to direct donation opportunities, the Foundation offers a range of sponsorship packages that can be tailored specifically for a corporation’s needs.
Special recognition of an individual’s personal contribution or achievement in the field of security management may be made in the form of a contribution to the ASIS Foundation. These gifts may be made by friends, relatives, co-workers, chapters, or regions to recognize the work and contributions of an individual or group.
Donations may be made to the Foundation as a memorial in honor of an individual who is no longer with us, but whose life made an impact on our profession.
Often times, a group of individuals or an organization wishes to honor a living security professional or mark a special occasion. A contribution to the ASIS Foundation is a unique way to provide well-earned recognition and to give back to the profession.
Foundation’s Annual Fundraisers
The Foundation’s primary fundraisers take place at the annual ASIS International Seminar and Exhibits. The ASIS Foundation Golf Tournament and the ASIS Foundation Night draw hundreds of guests each year. Extend your organization’s exposure and build brand recognition across a diverse audience of Seminar attendees by selecting from a range of sponsorship opportunities available for each event.

Tasers in Your Facility - Balance Liability against Threats (ASIS Webinar)
Understanding the challenges and having the knowledge to make the decision to arm security officers is becoming more critical with the escalated violence in healthcare settings. Increasingly, security professionals are being asked to evaluate the level of security provided within their facilities and to consider the use of Tasers. This webinar explores critical considerations in the decision to do so: research, cost, education, standard operating procedures, and post-use procedures. Review key findings in the case study Introduction of the Conducted Electrical Weapon into a Hospital Setting and look at the impact to patient care by the use of Tasers. Awareness of the increasing risk of violence and possessing the knowledge to make the necessary security decisions could be of substantial benefit for any institution.
The webinar is being hosted by the chapter and State Street Globa Security.
See the event page for details and to sign up, the webinar is scheduled from 11:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. on December 12, 2012.
