The AQSG Endowment Fund produces a steady stream of income through investing the principal. Using the interest and earnings from this fund each year AQSG offers grants for outreach projects instead of research. As the Endowment grows we will be able to expand our vision to include support of new educational programs, scholarship opportunities, expanded and enhanced publications, and additional community outreach programs. Endowment gifts of $10,000 or more may be given as named endowments with gains restricted to your specified purpose. Contact the AQSG office if you would like more information.
