APA Foundation

Giving Back, Moving Planning Forward

With your support, the APA Planning Foundation will help planners do more to rebuild and improve communities, reach out to nonplanners, and ensure opportunities for the planning leaders of tomorrow.

Support Communities, Students, and Planning Initiatives

Your contribution to the APA Planning Foundation funds philanthropic activities — scholarshps and community equity programs — and new initiatives like special research projects and creative ways to “tell the planning story.” APA is a 501(c)(3) organization, and the APA Foundation is included in this status.
