There are two ways you can support the Georgia Chapter of the American Fisheries Society. You can either contribute as a sponsor of our Chapter or you can make a donation to our Chapter Fundraising Raffle and Silent Auction. Since we are a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, all donations are tax-deductible.
Our sponsors are critical to the success of our annual meeting and our efforts to promote conservation and sustainability of our fishery resources and aquatic ecosystems in Georgia. As a non-profit, we are thankful for our sponsors because the money raised allows us to support aquatic education outreach programs for children in Georgia, fish habitat restoration projects around our state, and we are able to subsidize annual meeting expenses for students and professionals who participate in our annual meeting. Our Chapter is able to subsidize meeting expenses for more than 30 student members from around the state of Georgia so they are able to attend our annual meeting before they graduate.
In exchange for your support, your organization’s name and/or logo will appear in the meeting program and your organization’s name will appear on our website, in our monthly newsletter, on our Facebook group page, and posted to our Twitter and Instagram accounts. Some sponsorship levels include table space and free advertising space in our monthly newsletter. Check our sponsorship package for more details.
