Surveyors helping surveyors. The National Society of Professional Surveyors (NSPS) Foundation Disaster Relief Fund is offering financial assistance for surveyors affected by the recent disaster, and seeks donations.
Originating when Hurricane Andrew stuck Florida in 1992, the fund provides direct assistance (by request) for fellow surveyors. Assistance from the fund is intended to assist with immediate needs of daily living for those affected by a disaster. Distribution from the fund may be used for short term assistance expenses for food, clothing, lodging, medicine or other immediate needs. Applications are also accepted from surveyors needing assistance that are not members of the NSPS or respective state societies. The Foundation is a tax deductible 501 c3 organization. Instructions on how to apply for relief funds, or to donate can be found here.
