Foundation Contributors

The AAMFT Foundation would like to acknowledge the generous support of all who have contributed to the AAMFT Research & Education Foundation's Annual Appeal. The contributions will allow us to fund systemic and relational research, scholarship, and education in an effort to support and enhance the practice of systemic and relational therapies; advance the health care continuum; and improve client outcomes.

Did you know...        

• Over 400 MFTs in training have received Foundation support in their vital work with underserved populations in the United States?
• Nearly 100 MFTs and those in training have received recognition from the Foundation for their research into advancing our profession and the practice of MFT?
• Vital trainings and initiatives focused on working with emergent issues such as treatment of immigrants and refugees and supporting families impacted by incarceration are developed and offered annually by the Foundation?
• The Foundation works with partners and programs such as the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration and Mental Health US to bring needed attention to the crippling barriers to mental health services in an effort to increase access for all?

The AAMFT Foundation is funded entirely by contributions from MFTs from around the world who want to help influence positive change in our society. But without your support, these efforts won’t continue.

Join your fellow MFTs today by donating to the AAMFT Research and Education Foundation to support our commitment to building a better tomorrow for us all.
