Your private donations directly support ASWM’s ability to respond to time-sensitive issues as they arise and allow us to provide information, expert analysis, and recommendations regarding the impacts of potential policy and law on wetland protection programs and efforts. ASWM needs adequate, unrestricted funding to be able to respond to unexpected, rapidly emerging issues critical to wetland protection.
Established as a nonprofit organization in 1983, ASWM has played a leadership role among wetland professionals on state, federal, and regional levels for over 30 years. ASWM fosters a wetland ethic and works collaboratively with a number of partners to achieve real goals in wetland science, natural resource protections and management, and public policy. As a part of broader watersheds, wetlands play the role of connecting our streams, rivers and lakes to farmlands, forests and the ocean. Many organizations look to ASWM as a leader at the intersection between the think-tanks and the decision-makers, the on-the-ground regulators and wetland consultants. To achieve success in this ambitious undertaking, the Association depends on donors and benefactors to provide exceptionally generous gifts. We need extraordinary support to build ASWM’s capacity to protect the nation’s wetlands.
Your charitable donation allows ASWM to champion wetland programs, conduct time sensitive applied research projects, facilitate dialogue among key stakeholders and produce powerful communication tools. It also supports ongoing services that we provide such as “Wetland News Digest,” technical assistance, national and regional forums, and a robust website.
