Menomonee Falls, WI – March 22, 2019 – Copesan Services is pleased to announce its $8,340 contribution to two key charitable organizations providing scholarship funds and research support to the pest management industry.
The Copesan network of local service providers has been raising funds for eighteen years in support of Pi Chi Omega and the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) Foundation for research through our annual Copesan Charity Raffle. “Supporting research and education in our industry is key to its growth and important to the Copesan family. Professionals in our network are so generous and truly value the efforts of these organizations,” shared Deni Naumann, Copesan Services, President. “We are excited to continue our tradition of support for the NPMA Foundation and Pi Chi Omega.”
Sponsored by Syngenta, the 2019 fundraising raffle was held in conjunction with Copesan’s annual conference, February 19-21, 2019, in St. Pete Beach, Florida. This year’s event was attended by over 300 members of the Copesan Partner network and pest management suppliers who raised $4,170 in just a few short days. Copesan matched this amount for a total donation of $8,340 to be equally divided between Pi Chi Omega and the NPMA Pest Management Foundation for research.
Pi Chi Omega, a pest management professional fraternity, provides multiple $2,000 scholarships each year to deserving entomology students at universities across the country and around the world. The NPMA Pest Management Foundation has been providing grants for the research, development and refinement of pest management tools and techniques for over 30 years.
