2017 marked the 16th year the Copesan network raised scholarship funds for Pi Chi Omega and research funds for the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) Foundation through its Charity Raffle. This year, the Menomonee Falls, Wis.-based organization raised $11,660.

“Supporting the industry and its growth through research and education is important to the Copesan family. We’re excited to share the network’s generosity with Pi Chi Omega and the NPMA Pest Management Foundation,” says Copesan President Deni Naumann. “It’s great to see our Partner team members and industry suppliers work together and contribute to the development of strong, future leaders and ongoing essential scientific research and development.”

Sponsored by Syngenta, the 2017 raffle was held during Copesan’s annual conference, Feb. 14-16, 2017, in Orlando, Fla. This year’s event was attended by more than 330 members of the Copesan Partner network and pest management suppliers who raised $5,830 in just a few short days. Copesan matched this amount for a total donation of $11,660 to be equally divided between Pi Chi Omega for scholarships and the NPMA Foundation for research.

Pi Chi Omega, a pest management professional fraternity, provides a number of $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 more than 30 years.
