Why Donate to AFTA?

e’re more than a membership organization. We are acting on our commitment to social justice by educating and supporting the next generation of helping professionals…

AFTA has provided financial assistance to almost 400 students (members and nonmembers alike) through our Next Generation Fund. This highly successful scholarship program, begun in 2007, has enabled student to exchange ideas with leaders in their field—the very people whose theory these students are learning to apply. None of our scholarship recipients could have afforded this once in a lifetime experience on their own. This incredible opportunity is made possible through the generosity of donors like you. Please consider a gift to the Next Generation Fund. Your gift is an investment in the future of our helping profession.

Our Diversity Guest Scholarship Program puts our commitment to equality and social justice into action. This program provides scholarship assistance to eligible candidates belonging to marginalized groups, including people of color, of low socioeconomic status, people with disabilities, people with sexual orientations other than heterosexual, transgender people or those who identify as gender queer, immigrants from developing countries who become a part of a marginalized group in the US by virtue of their ethnicity, religion, class, gender identity and/or sexual orientation.

Since the program’s inception in 1996, AFTA has welcomed just over 300 diversity guests, from all over the world. That’s a remarkable achievement made possible because of thoughtful contributions from people like you.

Support our work so we can support their work.

Over the past four decades, our members have helped tens of thousands of individuals, couples, and families in crisis. Through education and successful interventions, AFTA members practice upstream prevention of many of the downstream challenges facing communities—the dissolution of relationships and families, domestic violence, childhood poverty, abuse, and neglect, lack of access to quality mental health services, racism, systemic oppression, and increased strains on the healthcare system.

As you know, the cost of managing programs does not go away. Whether you choose to give directly to our scholarship funds or support our ability to manage and expand fantastic programs with a gift to our Endowment Fund or General Fund, we hope for your continued generosity.

Thank you!
