AVER Sponsorship

AVER is a 501(c)3 volunteer non-profit organization. As such, beyond basic membership dues, we are largely dependent on outside fundraising, donations and sponsorship gifts, both at the national and local chapter levels. We very much appreciate the generosity both within and without the organization, and extend many thanks to those listed below.
