Research Goal: $10,000
This year the bar has been set at $10,000. With everyone's continued support, we hope to surpass this! Please ask any one of our Board of Governors on how you can contribute to ASHRAE Research Promotion and we will be more than happy to help you out. Thank you for your continued support.
ASHRAE Research Donations are Tax Deductible:
ASHRAE is qualified as a 501(c)(3) organization under the U.S. tax code, and investments in ASHRAE research are exempt from U.S. taxes. Similarly, Canadian investments are kept and spent in Canada on ASHRAE research projects. This permits Canadians carrying on business in Canada to claim their investments under section 37(1) on their Federal tax returns.

History of ASHRAE Research:
Since 1919, ASHRAE has supported research to improve the quality of life. ASHRAE Research impacts the industry by improving the way HVAC&R systems work, how they are applied and allow development of technical information to create standards and guidelines, which serve as the basis for testing and design practices around the world.
The Society funds thousands of projects addressing topics such as sound, duct design, the effect of oil in refrigerants, load calculations, thermal conductivity, simplified energy analysis procedures, weather data, refrigerant property data, fire and smoke control and solar design. The most significant ASHRAE research is in the areas of human comfort and the properties of materials and systems used in buildings and refrigeration systems.An Overview of the ASHRAE Research Development Process:
Each technical committee selects projects which it determines are most important in its area of interest and submits titles and brief abstracts of the projects. Society chapters, officers and members may also suggest research. The Research Administration Committee then prioritizes suggested projects on a Societywide basis. These projects comprise the ASHRAE Research Plan. Technical committees are then encouraged to prepare and submit work statements on the subjects of highest priority on the
