Honor a Colleague

SBCA Honor a Colleague Program

The SBCA Honor a Colleague program provides an opportunity for SBCA members and the wider community to show their appreciation of individuals in the field of benefit-cost analysis who have made important contributions through scholarship, policy analysis, teaching, administration, mentorship, and so on.

Donated funds are used to support SBCA activities beyond what can be achieved by membership dues alone. This includes forums, workshops, webinars, and other SBCA-sponsored events; mechanisms to expand SBCA’s reach to young scholars in the field, including graduate students; and communication activities that bring attention to the value of economic evaluation methods to policymakers and the broader public.

Once contributions on behalf of an honoree reach $5,000, a separate page is created on the SBCA website with the honoree’s photo and bio, along with a list of campaign contributors. The campaign will stay open indefinitely for additional contributions to be made.

Contributions are welcome to ongoing campaigns or to prior campaigns (see links below). If you would like to start a new campaign, submit a nomination to the SBCA Executive Director. The nomination will be reviewed by the SBCA Executive Committee and information on how to initiate a campaign will be provided.
