Did you know that corporate support dollars received from WASFAA vendors and corporate support donations are allocated to support the WASFAA general budget?
Since 2002, WASFAA exhibitors and vendors have provided over $500,000 in support to our association. These corporate support funds help WASFAA continue to meet its mission and have contributed to the overall financial security of the association. In 2015-2016 the corporate support dollars received contributed to nearly 30% of the WASFAA annual budget.
WASFAA has been able to provide so much to its members and the community: training, membership benefits, educational resources and other countless opportunities through the continued support of our corporate support exhibitors and donors. Associate members are a valuable addition to WASFAA; they engage with WASFAA committees, present sessions at conferences and provide valuable insights all contributions valuable to our profession.
WASFAA would like to recognize the following exhibitors who have been vendors for at least 20 of our last 24 conferences: Great Lakes, Sallie Mae, UW Credit Union and Wells Fargo – their continual and unwavering support of WASFAA is greatly appreciated.
We would also like to recognize the Department of Public Instruction (DPI) and Great Lakes for their additional corporate support donations over the years. Thank you!
We have 15 exhibitors confirmed for this upcoming WASFAA Spring Conference: American Student Assistance - SALT, Campus Logic, Citizens Bank, CoVantage Credit Union, cuLearn with Thrivent, Discover, edFinancial, Great Lakes, Inceptia, PNC Bank, Sallie Mae, Student Connections, Summit Credit Union, UW Credit Union and Wells Fargo.
When you attend the upcoming Spring WASFAA Conference please be sure to stop by their booths to say hello and learn about the many ways they can help you and your students. They would love to meet you!
The exhibitor fees collected from conferences and corporate support donations help WASFAA make a difference for the financial aid community as a whole.
