The Actuarial Foundation is a 2018 Power of A Award Winner
June 15, 2018
The Actuarial Foundation has been named a 2018 Power of A Gold Award winner in the Power to Enrich Lives category for the Math Motivators Tutoring Program. The American Society of Association Executives (ASAE) created the Power of A Awards to recognize a select number of organizations annually that distinguish themselves with innovative, effective and broad-reaching programs and activities that positively impact America and the world. As a Gold Award winner, the Foundation is automatically entered into consideration for the Summit Award, the highest recognition for associations.
The Math Motivators program pairs low-income high school students with professional actuaries and college students majoring in actuarial science, mathematics or math education. The students served do not have access to tutoring or cannot afford it, so Math Motivators provides free math tutoring in the high schools. The program’s tutors are all volunteers. “We’re thrilled with the recognition that the Power of A Gold Award brings to the Math Motivators program. We are so proud of the educational support that the Math Motivators program provides to high school students,” says Jason Leppin, executive director of The Actuarial Foundation.
The Power of A Awards recognize and celebrate the extraordinary contributions associations make to society by enriching lives, creating a competitive workforce, preparing society for the future, driving innovation and making a better world. As a Gold winner, the Foundation will be promoted through a number of different avenues including Association Spotlight messages to ASAE members, letters to elected officials, as well as promotional materials for The Power of A Summit Awards Dinner on October 3, 2018 at the National Building Museum in Washington, DC.
