The 2016 numbers are in and we are ecstatic over the results!!
Thanks to you, our donors, we far exceeded our Give ’16 campaign goal and raised more than $14,000 as of December 31. This brings our overall donor support for the entire year to more than $68,000. We are truly appreciative of your unwavering support of our mission year after year.
We’ve already begun putting these contributions to work in 2017 through continued investments in the success of office and administrative professionals. Two of our most recent efforts include…
…approving more than $25,000 in housing assistance for admins in need who are 55 and older. These five new applications were received during round one of our semi-annual submission process and represent both Vista Grande and non-Vista Grande residents.
…launching a new initiative, in partnership with IAAP, aimed at increasing awareness of and
access to the vast educational resources available to administrative professionals. In the coming months, we’ll share more details about our progress and the ROI of our efforts.
Become a Foundation Ambassador

As a non-profit organization, we know just how important a group of passionate volunteers are to the success of our efforts. It is our hope that as a Foundation Ambassador you will help inform and educate admins and other professionals about The Foundation, its mission, and the value of the work we do. Take the next step as an advocate for The Foundation and sign up as an Ambassador today.
As a prime example of the impact an Ambassador can make on The Foundation, we recently received a gold level corporate sponsorship to support our educational programs thanks to the efforts of one of our new Ambassadors. Elaine Harrison, CAP-OM recognized an opportunity to connect her employer, CHRISTUS Health, with information about our role in supporting the administrative profession that reaped large dividends for The Foundation. We are so grateful for volunteers and supporters like Elaine.
So many more exciting opportunities are in store for 2017 and we are counting on your continued support to help us achieve success. As always, thank you for all that you do!
