About This Campaign

Click here to donate on behalf of multiple mentors.

2019 is a year of celebration, as the ACPA Foundation will be acknowledging its 25th anniversary while the entire association also celebrates 95 years of existence. To help commemorate these milestones, increase engagement with the Foundation, and honor the contributions of so many in our profession, we invite you to participate in The Gratitude Campaign.

As we reflect on our 2019 Convention theme, “we are the leaders we have been waiting for.” and accept the challenge of our president, Dr. Washington, to affirm self-care, we invite you to show your gratitude to a mentor, leader, colleague, or friend who has touched your life.

With a $25 gift, you can honor someone who has impacted your professional and or personal journey while supporting the vital work and initiatives of our association. Once you make your gift, you will choose to notify your recipient with either a virtual or direct mail acknowledgment. Members are encouraged to honor more than one recipient with additional $25 gifts.

Our goal is that 500 members will share gratitude for the leaders instrumental in their lives. All donations given to this campaign will also count toward to the larger ACPA Foundation's Invest & Transform campaign goals.Join in the campaign now and make your gift. If you have any questions concerning the campaign, please reach out to Foundation Trustees Michael Bumbry ( or Todd Snovel (

Campaign to Support ACPA Foundation

Founded in 1994 during the presidency of Charles Schroeder, the purpose of the ACPA Educational Leadership Foundation (501c3 non-profit organization) is “to enhance the student affairs profession and to generate and disseminate knowledge of college students at all levels within higher education” (Article Three of the Articles of Incorporation). The organization is now known as the ACPA Foundation to more concisely communicate its role as the fundraising arm of ACPA College Student Educators International.

The Mission - The ACPA Foundation exists to support the priorities and activities of ACPA by raising funds and developing resources that help the Association fulfill its mission. 

The Vision - The ACPA Foundation will develop sufficient assets to effectively and sustainably fund ACPA’s efforts to provide excellent professional development opportunities to members, advance knowledge in the field, and support the transformative effect of education in the lives of college students.

In order to fulfill its purpose and mission, the Foundation invites members and non-members alike to provide philanthropic support for ACPA's vital initiatives involving research, scholarship, professional development and leadership program.
