The Endowment Fund raises funds, which are maintained in a perpetual account, to support federation activities. We currently use the interest from the proceeds to support the production and distribution of programs to each regional federation. These programs are then available to the individual club/society members of the regional federation.

We are also supporting the AFMS website. The AFMS website is not static, it grows and changes as the AFMS does, so periodically, it must be enhanced or even replaced.

He created and donated this beautiful piece especially for the 2006 Endowment Fund Raffle. The stylized leaf is approximately 5"x9" and the colorful frog measures 3".
