Your tax-deductible contribution to the Epsilon Sigma Phi Development Fund will support ESP's continued leadership in excellent professional development opportunities and recognition programs for current and retired Extension professionals.
Each year a comprehensive campaign helps to endow sufficient resources to sustain current scholarships, professional development opportunities, and recognition programs for Extension professionals and offers the possibility of new initiatives.
ESP has a goal of endowing $500,000 to support the professional development of its members. At the end the 2019 campaign we had reached 93% of this goal endowing $484,153.
