​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Oh, What a Year!​

I support the Foundation because it provides opportunity! For me personally and for my chapter and colleagues, the Foundation creates opportunities to make a difference.

The work of the ASIS Foundation touches the lives of security professionals across the globe. Since 1965, it has funded surveys, studies and research, as well as valued member projects like the IRC library and the 9/11 memorial garden. Today, it is developing much needed research, including using metrics to evaluate security ROI, in addition to funding life-transforming educational grants and awards for individuals and ASIS chapters.

​​​​​Create Informed Decision Making

Research and education are essential to advancing our field and these values are at the heart of all we do. Of note, in 2016 the Foundation released a new CRISP report on sports team travel security, as well as added to the body of work surrounding security metrics and ROI of security practices.​​

Additional projects include building awareness of our profession’s first competency model, which identifies required skillsets for a career in security management.

ASIS Foundation CRISP reports are a tremendous asset for any security professional. These publications provide a thorough overview of some of the most compelling issues we face today.

​​​​​Create Safer Communities

Highlights from the School Security Funding Competition Ceremony

​Through the Matthew Simeone Public-Private Partnership Award​, the Foundation and Law Enforcement Liaison Council ensure law enforcement and private security partnership best practices are recognized so other communities can learn from their efforts.​ In 2016, the Kansas City, Missouri, Chapter and the Overland Park, Kansas,​ Police Department w​ere recognized for their Overland Park Residential Security Initiative.

The Foundation helps build community bonds through its awards and fundraisers. This year, the Foundation in partnership with corporate sponsors, members and chapter support raised nearly $14,000 for the Lines of Hope campaign, which provides funding for vital support services for wounded U.S. service members.

In 2016, the Foundation School Funding Competition awarded Lake Powell High School in Orlando, Florida, more than $37,000 in donations and in-kind services for much needed security upgrades.

​​​​​Create Opportunities

The Foundation is committed to developing a strong leadership pipeline for the profession. In 2016, more than 200 security professionals and students took important steps forward in their professional growth because of Foundation educational grants.

Webster University awarded full-tuition scholarships for two ASIS members to complete a graduate degree in Business and Organizational Security Management.

This graduate program will enable me to challenge myself and further develop my skills as a security professional. I want to thank the ASIS Foundation and Webster University for making this opportunity possible.

The Foundation along with the Military Liaison and Transitions Councils, provided scholarships for active duty military and law enforcement professionals to pursue their ASIS board certifications.
