To foster innovation in animal science through charitable contributions that advance
and expand ASAS initiatives to enrich animal and human health and well-being.


25 Years ~ Look what we have accomplished together:

Over the past 115 years, the American Society of Animal Science (ASAS) has evolved into a multi-faceted organization, including establishing the ASAS Foundation 25 years ago as the philanthropic branch of ASAS. The Foundation enhances, advances, and supports ASAS’ mission and initiatives.

Thanks to the generosity of our members and corporate partners with charitable contributions, the ASAS Foundation has supported nearly 500 ASAS initiatives. This support has provided direct benefit to countless members through graduate students and young animal scientists' travel scholarships, student competitions, prestigious awards, offering distinguished lectures and symposia at meetings for all attendees, and more!

To celebrate our 25th Anniversary, we proudly launch the “Celebrating 25 Years of Excellence – Fostering Innovators for the Future” campaign. Our goal is to raise $250,000 by December 31, 2023, and we ask you to partner with us to reach this goal!
