Support Educational Opportunities – ODS/Linda S. Acheson Education Fund

November 5th, 2012

The ODS / Linda S. Acheson Education Fund

Linda Acheson and Lilly

 

The ODS / Linda Acheson Education Fund exists to support educational opportunities for ODS members and dressage enthusiasts.  When it was created, founder Linda Acheson and subsequently the ODS Board established the goal to gather $50,000 in principal before expending interest on the fund in support of educational programs.  So far we’ve reached approximately $42,000 — and we need your help to reach the current goal of $50,000 and make this a vital part of ODS educational programming!

The Linda S. Acheson ODS Education fund was established in 1998 and was renamed in 2004 as a memorial to Linda S. Acheson, former ODS President, Treasurer, and “L program” graduate.

As a Certified Public Accountant, Linda was instrumental in modernizing the ODS office and the financial records. Additionally, Linda was an advocate of rider and instructor education. She organized the first ODS certified instructor program and supported the ODS “L” Education Program, and judged many schooling shows.

Linda established this fund during her tenure as president. Her intent was to create a specific account where the earnings could be used to finance educational events and programs—in whole, or part; for the benefit of ODS members. Upon her death, the education fund name was changed to recognize Linda, and it received numerous contributions in honor of her memory.

The Linda Acheson Education Fund is not a “restricted fund” in the sense of an endowment, however the ODS board agreed in principle that the funds were dedicated to the educational mission Linda intended.

The goal is to raise additional monies through fundraisers or bequests/gifts to reach a point where the income from the fund be used to sponsor educational programs. Linda estimated, and the Board of Directors subsequently adopted that the principal of the fund reach and be maintained at $50,000 (as of September 1, 2012, the fund is approximately $42,000). At the point the income from the fund may be utilized for educational activities, the ODS Board of Directors will establish an advisory panel to select projects or programs to support.

Be on the watch for fundraisers for this fund that will be held at the upcoming ODS Fall Festival, including a raffle and a wine-pull.  If you would like to make a direct contribution to the fund, you may make an online donation using PayPal (go to this webpage: http://oregondressage.com/sponsorships.html) or you can mail a check, written out to the Oregon Dressage Society Education Fund and send it to ODS Office, PO Box 959, Hillsboro, OR 97123-0959.

Please contact the ODS office for details or if you would like to volunteer for marketing and/or fundraising on behalf of the fund.

All Things Oregon … and Pretty in Pink! Basket Themes for the 2012 USDF BOG and Youth Baskets from ODS

October 26th, 2012

Dear Members,

 

It is almost the time of year to set up our annual “All Things Oregon” basket that we donate to the USDF Convention as a Board of Governors Meeting door prize.  A second basket will be donated to the USDF Youth Executive Board Auction will repeat the theme of three years ago – “Pretty in Pink”.  I’m really looking forward to putting together this year’s baskets … both our BOG basket and our youth auction baskets have been crowd favorites at Convention for the past several years!

 

This year, I’m hoping that members will contribute items unique to your area for the baskets. 


Items that we have included in years past “All Things Oregon” basket include Wine, Jelly/Jams, Local Artist’s CDs, Local Chocolates, Oregon Ducks/ OSU Beavers merchandise, handmade candles, calendars, local horse treats, etc.    In the past, the youth basket had brushes, socks, Christmas ornaments, a bit, gloves, saddle pads, hand beaded browbands and other fun horsey items that were primarily pink in color.

 

We are hosting the ODS General Membership Meeting and the ODS Banquet a few week priors to our departure to the National Convention which makes it easy for you to hand deliver contributions!   Alternatively, you can mail or hand-deliver items to the ODS Office in Hillsboro, to a drop-off location in Tualatin or with other ODS Representatives attending convention who live in Salem, Vancouver, Lake Oswego, Jacksonville and Sherwood.

 

What do you think you can send from your area? 

 

Warmest Regards,
Corinne Stonier
