Friends Foundations Committee Celebrates Their 30th Anniversary and Launches a Fundraising Campaign to Kick-Off in June 2021.

This year marks the 30th Anniversary of the NYSRPS Friends Foundation.  The Friends Foundation was created in 1991 to allow members, fellow professionals, and the public to make charitable contributions (tax deductible) for the purpose of the advancement of the leisure services field.  The primary focus goals of “Friends” is to generate resources initiating educational scholarships and development opportunities for students pursuing careers in the leisure service field, to foster the advancement of research within the field of leisure services and afford the membership new opportunities for professional training and development. 

Please consider donating to this worthwhile fund and help support student scholarships and the work that they do for leisure professionals.  Currently past Charter Members and past NYSRPS leaders are being asked to make donations to replenish the fund and to initiate our targeted funding appeal.  Use the donation form below to make an on-line donation and write “Friends Foundation” in the comment section.
