About This Campaign
The Diamond Honoree Program, established by the Foundation in 1999 is both a recognition program and a fund raising activity. Those nominated for consideration are recognized for their outstanding and sustained contributions to higher education and to student affairs.
The funds raised on behalf of the Honorees are used for ACPA and Foundation activities in keeping with the Association’s purposes and strategic goals. Since its inception in 1999 the program has generated over $100,000.
Donations given to this campaign will also count toward the overall ACPA Foundation's Invest & Transform campaign.
Thank you for your support of the Diamond Honoree campaign. If you wish to contribute to multiple campaigns, at this time credit card payments require separate transactions for each honoree. If you wish to make contributions to support multiple diamond honorees with only one transaction, please mail the ACPA Foundation one check with the total amount, indicating to whom the amount should be distributed and in what portions. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
