Serving as the charitable arm of ASSP, the ASSP Foundation provides financial and programmatic support of the profession on behalf of ASSP and the ASSP community.
The ASSP Foundation is committed to a safer future for workers. We advance occupational safety and health (OSH), we promote OSH as a career choice, and we help build a sustainable talent pipeline for the profession.
The ASSP Foundation is a 501(c)3 organization, EIN 36-6145045. Donations are tax-deductible.
The ASSP Foundation has invested more than $6 million into the occupational safety and health community to develop opportunities for career guidance, education and leadership development. The charitable effort is designed to attract new individuals to the profession as well as enhance the knowledge and skills of current safety students and professionals.

Good governance is at the heart of any successful non-profit. It helps us achieve our objectives and drives improvement and ensures maintenance of legal and ethical standing. The ASSP Foundation Board of Trustees governs the ASSP Foundation, helping to steward and maximize the impact of your gifts.
In April of 2020, the ASSP Foundation Board of Trustees voted to shift their governance structure resulting in the ASSP Board of Directors serving as the governing body of the both the Society and our Foundation.
This helps to strengthen the strategic alignment between the ASSP Foundation and ASSP while making the ASSP Foundation’s programs more impactful. Since we are funded by contributions from the safety community, it is important that we optimize our resources as best we can so we can focus on programs that will build the pipeline of future safety professionals.
