Move Mountains Giving Campaign

Move Mountains Annual Giving Campaign

WSAE’s Move Mountains campaign is an annual giving program, providing members, organization and industry partners the opportunity to give back to the Society that has been committed to “creating meaningful connections and enhancing competencies of association professionals” in Wisconsin for more than 75 years.

The funds we raise through this campaign will be used at a time when there is a real need for the organization. The funds raised in 2021 were used to support the continued participation of members experiencing hardship due to COVID-related factors.

WSAE supports association professionals and, through Moving Mountains, you can support WSAE and its important mission.

Give what you can - $10, $25, $50 or $100. Every little bit helps and all donors will be recognized on our website.

Together, we can Move Mountains - We certainly are Stronger by Association!

Jerry Deschane, CAE, IOMFor almost all of my professional career, I’ve been a member of the Wisconsin Society of Association Executives. It’s where I learn about trends in leadership and nonprofit governance; it’s where I sharpen my own professional skills and it’s where I get ideas and tips from friends and fellow professionals. WSAE has become my home for professional development.

That’s why I am a donor to the Move Mountains campaign; and it’s why I am asking you to join me.

The Move the Mountains with WSAE campaign gives ME an opportunity to give back to an organization that has helped me grow as an association executive.  Finding likeminded professionals to celebrate wins and discuss problem-solving proven techniques to overcome challenges has been a valuable asset in my association toolkit. I look forward to welcoming new associates to WSAE and helping them to see the value that I have seen over the years.
