The 2020 Gratitude Campaign

The 2020 Gratitude Campaign

About This Campaign

The Gratitude Campaign is an opportunity to honor professionals and faculty who have made a significant difference in the lives of others. Who has made an impact in your life? Who was there for you when you needed challenge and support? What professor illuminated a concept or idea that you had not previously considered?

With a gift of $25 or more, we will notify your sponsored individual of your contribution to our Gratitude Campaign in their honor. Your gift will go directly to the ACPA Foundation which supports the broader association in its efforts to boldly transform higher education.

All gifts made to the Gratitude Campaign will directly sponsor students for the 2021 NextGen Institute. NextGen is a unique opportunity for undergraduate and master’s level students to learn about careers in student affairs and higher education. The conference is a unique opportunity for the next generation of Student Affairs and Higher Education educators to meet and learn from current graduate preparation program faculty, Next Gen alumni, and seasoned professionals who work across the country at diverse institutional types in a variety of positions.

*Additional bonus for anyone who donates to this campaign – entry into a drawing for a complimentary #ACPA21 Convention registration. Two winners will be randomly selected by ACPA!

Our goal is that 200 members will share gratitude for the leaders instrumental in their lives. All donations given to this campaign will also count toward the larger ACPA Foundation's Invest & Transform campaign goals.

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.
