Why isn't ASGA "non-profit"?

Q. Why isn't ASGA a non-profit organization?
A. Having a pure educational mission is not only reserved for non-profit organizations.

Our leadership team has, since 1983, focused on a core mission of teaching Student Government leaders to become more effective and influential.

We've never wavered from that or compromised our focus because of financial pressures, rewards, or issues.

"For-profit" companies such as ASGA, can and do operate ethically, serve their constituents well, and stay true to their purpose and mission statements.

The proof of an organization or company's "motives" is what it produces and what it does over time-- not what it says.

Since 1983, the founders produced well-respected magazines such as Student Leader and Florida Leader, has sponsored several respected and prestigous awards and scholarships such as the Florida College Student of the Year Awards (see and the "Best of Florida Schools Awards" (see for more than 25 years, consistently and without wavering from our core mission.

Whether we're not-profit from a legal perspective is irrelevant. ASGA's motives should be judged by its actions and its founders' long and respected history of service to the higher-education community nationwide.
