2024 RP Campaign

Our ANNUAL RP CAMPAIGN is nearing completion with only 2-1/2 months remaining. Our goal this year is $6,350, and we are still in need of your support to reach our goal!

We would like to thank all of our 2023-24 Donors and Supporters for you generous RP gift.

We would like to especially recognize our major donor – Kenneth Young, the Trane representative for the southern West Virginia area. Kenneth has been a major supporter of our annual RP campaign for the past 8 years. Not only has he been a major donor, because he is a Trane representative, his donations are matched at 100% by Trane. These donations have accounted for a major portion of our funds raised each of these years. Again, a HUGE THANK YOU to Kenneth!

PLEASE CONSIDER DONATING TO ASHRAE RP TO HELP FUND RESEARCH, SCHOLARSHIPS and TRAINING. You can go here (ASHRAE RP DONATION PAGE)  for the ASHRAE RP Online Donation Form, and be sure to list “West Virginia” in the chapter entry so we are credited with your donation.  Or contact David Cotton, RP Chair, at [email protected].
