- PSA Foundation
The specific goals and objectives for the Foundation will require development as part of an overall business plan. However, the general goals of the Foundation are to 1) develop financial support for unique educational opportunities for students, both undergraduate and graduate, such as scholarships and fellowships, 2) develop financial support for enhancing targeted faculty initiatives specifically benefitting the industry and the PSA, 3) develop financial support for special needs activities of the PSA, such as symposia and conferences, 4) provide financial support for lectureships in addressing specific concerns/issues of importance to the global community, and 5) other specific needs as identified by the governing body or the donors
The Poultry Science Association serves the poultry and poultry-related industries through stimulating basic scientific discovery, encouraging the application of science-based information in the industry and providing the education and disseminating the knowledge required to maintain a viable industry. In addition, the PSA provides the forum for addressing the issues and challenges faced by the industry, the members of the Association and society worldwide.
Although many of these activities are part of the ongoing efforts of the PSA, there are often unique challenges faced by the industry and the Association that can benefit from additional targeted effort and more focused financial support. The opportunities for this added ‘margin of excellence’ created by the generosity of Foundation Donors will extend the influence of the PSA beyond the traditional arenas. The Foundation would serve as a means of providing support for addressing contemporary issues affecting the poultry industry which include, but are not limited to, 1) sustaining a wholesome and viable food supply, 2) providing a cleaner environment and 3) contributing to the well being of people globally. This will truly allow the membership of the PSA to become more global in their influence and provide greater overall benefits to the industry, the members of the Association and people worldwide.
