APAPA-SE to Match Donations in Memory of Matt Honea

https://fundrazr.com/MattHoneaMemorialFund

Matt Honea received his Masters in City & Regional Planning from University of Pennsylvania.  He applied these skills to his passion of helping make his community better, including the Make the World Better Foundation (MTWB).

In his memory, the American Planning Association Pennsylvania Chapter Southeast Section (APAPASE) is offering to match any donations to the Matt Honea Memorial Fund, up to $500 before March 1st.  The Matt Honea Memorial Fund is part of the Make The World Better Foundation who work to rebuild parks in Philadelphia. The fund is to honor Matt’s legacy at Ralph Brooks Park, a park he truly loved.

When donating, please make sure you include “APAPASE” in the comments, so it is earmarked for the match.

Help design our new website!

Maintaining an effective website that provides useful information on events, employment opportunities, and planning issues is one of the best ways that the Southeast Section can serve our members and interested officials and citizens. Over the next several months, we will be redesigning our website and we would love to hear how you think it can be improved. Please click on the link below to complete a brief survey. It should only take you a few minutes and all responses are completely anonymous. Thank you!
