About Apra

The Apra Foundation

The Apra Foundation was founded in 1998 to support educational opportunities and professional development for individuals engaged in advancement research and to serve as the charitable arm of Apra. The Foundation Board of Trustees is comprised of leaders in our industry who have served or currently serve on the Apra Board of Directors. Support of the Margaret Fuhry Award is one of the Foundation’s primary activities. 

The upcoming focus of the Foundation Board of Trustees will be identifying opportunities both to generate contributions for the Foundation and to grant those funds to support professional development. Look for new initiatives designed to recognize dedication and service to the prospect development field.

The Apra Foundation is proud to fund Apra's annual Margaret Fuhry Award and Distinguished Service Award. More information can be found online here.
