MSPA and NASP, as well as more importantly children and families in Minnesota and across the country, are extremely grateful for the generous contributions made to the 2014 NASP Children's Fund Silent Auction at the MSPA Midwinter Conference by those listed below:
MSU Moorhead school psychology program
MSU Mankato school psychology program
UW-River Falls school psychology program
University of Minnesota school psychology program
Minneapolis Public Schools
Minneapolis Marriott West
Western Psychological Services
Multi-Health Systems (MHS)
We are excited to share that $827 was raised through the auction this year! The NASP Children's Fund is a tax-exempt, non-profit, independent charity. The Fund accepts and disburses monies for charitable purposes that are consistent with the Fund's priorities. These include:
1. Advocating for the essential rights and welfare of all children and youth;
2. Embracing individual and group differences in children and youth based upon gender and diverse ethnic, cultural, language, and experiential backgrounds;
3. Promoting learning environments which facilitate optimal development; and
4. Producing effective interventions that address both learning and social/emotional issues that impede a child's success and happiness.
Thanks again to all those who contributed items-and, of course, to those who bid on the items during the auction as well. Your generosity is greatly appreciated.
