SMPS Foundation Memorial Leadership Endowment

The SMPS Foundation established this endowment to honor deceased members who served in formal leadership roles of the Society and/or of the SMPS Foundation.

Earnings from the endowment will be used to support leadership and learning opportunities for SMPS members. These activities may include underwriting or offering scholarships to attend Build Business, The Pinnacle Experience, or other appropriate events sponsored by SMPS.
