Why Give

Join the Campaign to Transform the Future

Every year, APF has to turn down more than 90 percent of the proposals we receive from brilliant young psychologists — proposals that have the potential to find solutions to pressing social needs. Domestic violence… post-trauma recovery… prejudice and stigma… stress reduction, just to name a few. We simply don’t have adequate funding to support them.

APF seeks to increase its capacity to make grants that give students and early career psychologists the support they need to work on these cutting-edge issues and to launch their careers. Please join the ranks of APF’s distinguished donors whose contributions help us transform the future.

Why I Give to APF

David H. Barlow“It is a privilege to be able to give back to our great science and profession of psychology by honoring our past and ensuring a vibrant future through important research support for our next generation of psychologists.”

David H. Barlow, PhD, ABPP, professor of psychology and psychiatry and founder and director emeritus of the Center for Anxiety and Related Disorders at Boston University


Rosie Phillips Bingham, PhD"Some things should endure. Among those things are interventions and methods that significantly change the world for the benefit of human kind. By donating to APF I help to assure that psychological research, education and intervention will continue to grow and advance. Programs like women's leadership training, the National Multicultural Conference and Summit, and research and teaching awards will continue to help to train our best and brightest. I want to be a part of that future. I want to be a part of helping some things to endure. So I give to APF."

Rosie Phillips Bingham, PhD, Vice President for Student Affairs, The University of Memphis
