NAKPEHE OFFICER/COMMITTEE CHAIR REPORT FORM
Progress Report
(January 4, 2006)

Report #: 6.04

Name of Office/Committee: Foundations Committee

Person Submitting Report: Charles Ash

Progress Report/Tasks Completed:

  • The committee members contacted several publishers/Vendors requesting them to be sponsors of the Sargent and Hanna Lectures. Thanks to the efforts of Marilyn Buck and Bill Sparks, Polar has agreed to sponsor the Hanna Lecture. Human Kinetics will continue to sponsor the Homans Lecture. Thanks to the efforts of Ginny Overdorf, Walk4Life has agreed to sponsor the Sargent Lecture for the 2006 Conference in San Diego.
  • Charlie Ash is working on a permanent sponsor for the Sargent Lecture and will be in contact with Marilyn Buck and Mel Finkenberg during the conference.
  • President Overdorf request in an e-mail on March 28th, that the Foundations committee establish guidelines for the disbursement of funds in the various NAKPEHE accounts; in particular, the Diversity account for the 2006 conference. However, the Foundation Committee in 2004 had proposed a recommendation to the Board regarding "Guidelines for Expending Endowed Funds" (see at the end of this report). I cannot find any action taken by the BoD on these recommendation. Therefore I would like to move these to the BoD for action.
  • I sent a letter to the NAKPEHE membership (it was included in the membership renewal letter) requesting donations to the various endowed funds (see letter below). According to Jackie Lund, it was the most successful donation drive in the history of NAKPEHE. Jackie will provide the total amount of the donations in her report.
  • I have written 28 letters of Thank You to members who donated to one or more of the NAKPEHE funds.

Suggestions for Future Plans Related to this Office/Committee

  • Currently no suggestions other than completing the above tasks.

Action Required by Board:

  • See bullet #3 above.

Budget Implications:

FOUNDATIONS COMMITTEE (2004-2005)
Guidelines for Spending Financial Donations to NAKPEHE

One of the duties of the Foundations Committee is to solicit donations for NAKPEHE's endowed funds and donations in general. Most donations received, however, are earmarked for one of the existing endowments. It is also the responsibility of the Foundations Committee to oversee the spending of these funds. Listed below are the current endowed funds and how they are to be used.

In 1994, the Board established a Memorial Fund with its first contribution from the late Dean Pease. The Memorial Fund will not fund our current ongoing programs, but instead the interest and special gifts will be used for special needs and projects. Such reasonable expenditures include funding of a special meeting or conference, an outstanding guest lecturer, or a study deemed important to the association and profession. To date we have more than $16,000 in the fund with a goal of $30,000 before interest is to be used for special projects.

The second endowed fund is to assure support of the four lectureships (Homans, Sargent, Hanna, and Poindexter). The early leaders, Amy Morris Homans, Dudley Allen Sargent, and Delphine Hanna, as well as numerous recent scholars who have honored them annually through their presentations are an integral part of our past, present and future. Contributions to the Commemorative Lecture Fund will help maintain support for these important lectures at our national conference. The Homans Lecture was begun by NAPECW in 1967; the Sargent and Hanna Lectures were begun by NAPEHE in 1980 and 1992, respectively. Whereas, the Poindexter Lecture was initiated in 2003 in renaming the "Young Scholar Lecture" in honor of Hally Beth. Again, it is proposed that the interest from this fund be used to support the lectureships. 

The third fund, the Cultural Diversity Fund was established in 1996. The fund is intended to support education, training, and research efforts to increase teacher and coach sensitivity to all people. The fund initiated by Charles Corbin was to have a portion of the fund available for gay and lesbian issues. The fund is expected to reach $5,000 before 80% of the interest will be used for special projects, and/or lectureships appropriate to the Fund's purpose.

Since the Foundations Committee is responsible for overseering the spending of the endowed funds, the committee would serve as the body to which requests would be submitted for the funding of special projects. Requests should be submitted to the Foundations Chair by November 1st of each year with a decision being made at the January meeting of NAKPEHE.

Donations that are received marked undesignated, it is the suggestion of the committee that the funds be used to promote NAKPEHE (i.e. increase membership, brochures, booths at conventions, etc.). The Executive Secretary would inform the Foundations Chair of the amount available and the Chair would communicate to the membership the money that is available and the timing for any funding proposals.

NATIONAL ASSOCIATION FOR KINESIOLOGY AND PHYSICAL EDUCATION IN HIGHER EDUCATION
ENDOWMENT SUPPORT REQUEST

For those of us who have devoted much of our professional lives in support of Kinesiology and Physical Education, in general, and NCPEAM, NAPECW and NAPEHE, in particular, the NAKPEHE Foundations Committee requests your financial assistance for our endowed funds.

Although the importance of Kinesiology and Physical Education has received increased visibility through its various programs, higher education and professional preparation continue to ride stormy fiscal seas. The National Association for Kinesiology and Physical Education in Higher Education (NAKPEHE) remains an important association in support of kinesiology/physical education, human rights, and diversity issues. NAKPEHE has also been an important link between our past (NCPEAM, 1897; NAPECW, 1924), through its commemorative lectures (Amy Morris Homans, Dudley Allen Sargent, Delphine Hanna, and Hally Beth Poindexter) and our future multi-disciplinary perspectives.

In 1994, the Board established a Memorial Fund with its first contribution from the late Dean Pease. The Memorial Fund will not fund our current ongoing programs, but instead the interest and special gifts will be used for special needs and projects. Such reasonable expenditures include funding of a special meeting or conference, an outstanding guest lecturer, or a study deemed important to the association and profession. 
The second endowed fund is to assure support of the four lectureships (Homans, Sargent, Hanna, and Poindexter). The early leaders, Amy Morris Homans, Dudley Allen Sargent, and Delphine Hanna, as well as numerous recent scholars who have honored them annually through their presentations are an integral part of our past, present and future. Contributions to the Commemorative Lecture Fund will help maintain support for these important lectures at our national conference. The Homans Lecture was begun by NAPECW in 1967; the Sargent and Hanna Lectures were begun by NAPEHE in 1980 and 1992, respectively. Whereas, the Poindexter Lecture was initiated in 2003 in renaming the "Young Scholar Lecture" in honor of Hally Beth Poindexter. Again, it is proposed that the interest from this fund be used to support the lectureships. 
The third fund, the Cultural Diversity Fund was established in 1996. The fund is intended to support education, training, and research efforts to increase teacher and coach sensitivity to all people. The fund initiated by Dr. Charles "Chuck" Corbin was to have a portion of the fund available for gay and lesbian issues. The fund is expected to reach $5,000 before 80% of the interest will be used for special projects, and/or lectureships appropriate to the Fund's purpose.

Therefore, it is our hope that you help NAKPEHE continue to support Kinesiology and Physical Education, special projects, Commemorative Lectures, and diversity and human rights issues through your generous contributions to these funds. 
Thank you for your consideration, donation, and assistance in these important endeavors.

Sincerely yours,
Charles W. Ash
