The ASPRS Foundation re-established the Birdseye Club in 2009 to recognize donors who have supported the Foundation with larger contributions, beginning from 2004 when the Foundation was recovered by ASPRS . The Birdseye Club is named in honor of the first (then) American Society of Photogrammetry President Col. Claude H. Birdseye.
The Birdseye Club levels are as follows:
|Gold Member||$5000 or greater|
|Silver Member||$2500 - $4999|
|Member||$1000 - $2499|
The intent is to continue recognizing donors periodically by publishing their names in future issues of PE&RS and on this website, and by indicating those who achieve increased levels of recognition through the award of lapel pins. The current list of donors includes more than 1000 names who have collectively provided the resources to support the important programs of the Foundation.
The original list of donors indicates those who first supported the ASP Foundation beginning in 1979.
