2018 CAS Donation Challenge

2018 CAS Donation Challenge

CAS Past-President Steve Lowe pledges $5,000 if goal of 100 CAS member donors, including 50 first-time donors, is met by the end of the year!

The Actuarial Foundation is pleased to announce a donation challenge for members of the Casualty Actuarial Society (CAS) by CAS Past-President Steve Lowe. Read his letter to the membership below for more details, and donate today to help us reach our goal!

Dear CAS Members:

During my terms as CAS President-Elect in 2015 and President in 2016, I had the chance to become closer to the work of The Actuarial Foundation, the philanthropic organization for the actuarial profession in the United States. The Foundation offers a unique opportunity to showcase the talents and generosity of actuaries, and I am proud to support an organization so dedicated to consistently creating possibilities through its math education and financial literacy resources and scholarships.

We can all take great pride in what we’ve been able to accomplish through the work of the Foundation. Achievements this past year include:

*Hosting a successful Modeling the Future Challenge, a national math competition for high school students to model how new technologies may change the future, in New York City.

*Awarding Foundation scholarships to 56 well-deserving college students, ensuring a bright and more diverse future for the actuarial profession.

*Expanding the award-winning Math Motivators tutoring program to Seattle and Minneapolis/St. Paul this fall after seeing favorable outcomes in Hartford, Connecticut, and Chicago.

I am so inspired by the work of the Foundation that I have once again committed to a Challenge for CAS Members—100 CAS donors from now until the end of December. Last year, we achieved our goal of 100 CAS donors, but I know we can do better and get even more of our members involved. This year, I’m adding another layer to the Challenge and am asking that at least 50 of our 100 contributors be first-time donors.

To encourage you, if we reach our goal of 100 CAS donors, including 50 first-time donors, by the end of the year, I will gladly contribute an additional $5,000 to The Actuarial Foundation. Please join me in this worthwhile effort and support the work of ourFoundation and the future of our profession.

Please use this form to make your donation today.

Thank you for your generosity!

All the best,
Steve Lowe
