About the ESA Foundation
Mission statement: The Epsilon Sigma Alpha Foundation is dedicated to the promotion of continuing education and to altruistic activities that make a positive difference in the world community. Voluntary contributions of time and money from ESA members, ESA Foundation members, and friends of the Foundation are the ESA Foundation’s sole sources of support. As a nonprofit, tax exempt corporation, the ESA Foundation supports the service and leadership programs and the philanthropic projects of Epsilon Sigma Alpha International. The ESA Foundation’s major emphasis is service to others, which is illustrated in its motto: Serving the World Community...Because We Care.
An Annual Meeting is held in July in conjunction with the International Convention of ESA International. An Open Board meeting is held annually to provide an opportunity for total participation by members. Three Directors will be elected during the Annual Meeting.
