Whiting Memorial Fund

The Whiting Memorial Fund was established in honor of our first President, Steve Whiting. It is part of our Charter. The Fund has its own Committee. There is no paid staff or expense. One hundred percent of all donations go toward cash awards to selected awardees. The award is only conferred when the select committee unanimously agrees on a deserving nomination. Funds donated to the Whiting Memorial Fund are kept separate from other donations. The criteria for selection are taken directly from our Charter (constitution) as follows:
  1. The Whiting Memorial Fund {the “Fund”} is a philanthropic fund administered by the International Society for Philosophical Enquiry to reward individuals and groups whose accomplishments and goals exemplify the ideals of the I.S.P.E. Criteria for awards are as follows (ISPE Charter):
  2. a. A person who typifies the I.S.P.E. ideal of an intellectually superior person who strives to benefit society through advanced enquiry, original research and/or creative contributions, and who has demonstrated significant progress in these endeavors.
    b. An organization that works with or serves persons of superior intellect. These include gifted student programs in public and private schools, educational competitions that encourage study and achievement, and not-for-profit organizations that provide placement and counseling programs for the gifted.
