    President Trump has declared Texas and Louisiana “Disaster Areas” due to Hurricane Harvey. 

    Many surveyors, their employees and their families will be the victims of this flooding! These surveyors will lose most of their furniture, appliances and clothing and their offices to the flood waters. Some will not be located in a FEMA designated flood zone and will have no flood insurance! Others will have flood insurance on the buildings but no contents!

    The National Society of Professional Surveyors Foundation needs donations! Money is needed to replenish the Disaster Relief Fund and satisfy the claims that will be arriving from Texas and Louisiana! The Disaster Relief Fund is there to help fellow professionals (that means you) recover from floods, storms, tornadoes, fires and any other natural or man-made disaster. You never know when you are going to need help. 

    Send your donations to headquarters:

    National Society of Professional Surveyors Foundation, Inc.
    5119 Pegasus Drive Suite Q
    Frederick, MD 21704

    Please mark Disaster Relief on your checks and remember we are a tax deductible 501 c3 organization.
