The American Board of Professional Psychology Foundation was established in 2010 and is recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. The mission of the ABPP Foundation is the promotion of competent specialty practice and specialty board certification, the protection of the public through providing educational opportunities in the form of scholarships and assistance to training programs, and provision of continuing professional development. The Foundation supports educational programs, which interpret and promote the importance of board certification in psychology to the general public and to those in related professions. To achieve this goal, the mission of the Foundation includes raising funds. No earmarked funds can be used for any purposes other than those for which they have been designated.
The ABPP Foundation accepts donations to the General Fund, as well as those directed toward established dedicatory purposes, providing that those purposes are in keeping with the law and the organization’s intentions.
