Statewide ASAP Initiative for May 2024

As all of you know, Supreme's Aid and Support After Pregnancy (ASAP) program has been an outstanding success over the last two years. This program enables Council donations to pregnancy centers and maternal homes to be supplemented with matching funds from Supreme up to a certain dollar amount. Many of you have enthusiastically embraced this program, driving Florida to #1 in the Order in FY 2022-2023 and currently #5 in this Fraternal Year.

We are asking all Councils to participate in this short-term fundraising project. Here is how it will work.
