About the Foundation

The ASIS Foundation was founded as an affiliate of ASIS International in 1966 to serve the security industry through education and research. The Foundation provides an opportunity to give back to security industry colleagues and awards more than 100 grants and scholarships annually to support security professionals. It is governed by a volunteer Board of Trustees and managed by a full-time staff director. The Foundation’s work is made possible by generous gifts from individuals, chapters, councils and organizations.
