MFP Leadership Campaign Makes Year-End Push to Reach $500,000 5-Year Pledge Goal

The ASA is pleased to announce that in 2009 and 2010, the Minority Fellowship Program (MFP) Leadership Campaign, led by former ASA Vice President Margaret L. Andersen and Executive Officer Sally T. Hillsman, has been supported by 87 contributing leaders, including Sociologists for Women in Society (SWS). (See September/October 2009, January 2010, and March 2010 issues of Footnotes for prior articles on the Campaign.)

All of these leaders made a significant five-year commitment, or in a few cases a large one-time contribution, to help secure the future of MFP. This leadership comes at a crucial time for MFP, following the end of its NIMH T-32 grant funding. The total amount of the combined 2009 and 2010 pledges have totaled nearly $470,000 over five years, bringing the Campaign close to its $500,000 goal.

There is still time to participate in the MFP Leadership Campaign and help reach the $500,000 mark before the end of 2010! As you think of your year-end giving, please consider joining the donors listed below. MFP is completely supported by contributions from its organizational partners and individual ASA members. For more information, contact Jean H. Shin, Director of the ASA Minority Affairs Program, at

Thank you again to all who have supported the Campaign and also to those who provide support to MFP at ASA membership renewal time, the MFP Benefit Reception at the Annual Meeting, and through contributing publication royalties. A special recognition goes to organizational partners SWS, Alpha Kappa Delta, the Midwest Sociological Society, the Association of Black Sociologists, and the Southwestern Sociological Association!
