Support your Academy and donate to The George Butler Lecture Series and the Future Scholars Endowment Fund

The George Butler Lecture Series is sponsored by The Academy of Leisure Sciences and is named after a Founding Member of the Academy. George Butler's legacy is shared by the parks and recreation profession and by the nation's communities, families, and particularly children and youth. He was one of the first to recognize the importance of parks and recreation to human development. The George Butler Lecture Series is currently presented at the opening of the NRPA Research Symposium.

The TALS Future Scholars Endowment Fund

The purpose of The Academy's Future Scholars Program is to provide graduate students who are interested in pursuing a doctorate in an area related to recreation and leisure studies the opportunity to meet some of the outstanding researchers and scholars in this field by providing financial assistance to support their participation at the TALS Research and Teaching Institute. Currently, TALS has a matching fund commitment from Sagamore-Venture. For every dollar you donate to the Future Scholars Endowment Fund, Sagamore-Venture will match your contribution dollar for dollar. The match is for the first $10,000 donated to the Fund. Your donation will help double the opportunity the Academy has to assist rising stars in our field.
