We are excited to present to you ACPA’s 2019 Thrive Campaign. In alignment with ACPA’s renewed mission to create a world where people with cleft and craniofacial differences thrive, the Development Committee combined efforts with ACPA’s Board of Directors to launch a mission-based fundraising campaign in support of ACPA programs. In total, our goal is to raise $12,000 in donations and pledges at ACPA’s 76th Annual Meeting.
One of the most important ways ACPA’s mission is fulfilled is through our programs and resources for patients, families and professionals. The Thrive Campaign will highlight these various programs, from educational materials to community support, and provide a richer opportunity for members to get involved. A Thrive Campaign table will be featured at ACPA’s 76th Annual Meeting, where attendees can stop by, make a donation and learn more about the many resources that ACPA provides for our community.
The Thrive Campaign honors significant aspects of ACPA’s programs with meaningful numbers. Between the five different giving levels, donors can choose different categories such as recognizing ACPA’s 76 years of team care by donating $76 or celebrating 176 ACPA Approved Teams by giving $176. Donors who choose to celebrate 1943, the year ACPA was founded, will become charter members of ACPA’s new President’s Circle of donors. Although each giving level is different, they all lead back to our mission of helping the people we serve daily. Every gift, no matter the size, makes a difference.
By supporting the Thrive Campaign, you support and further the mission of ACPA. We hope you will join us as we continue to provide resources for patients and families, and the cleft and craniofacial professionals who provide their care. Make sure to stop by ACPA’s Thrive Campaign Table at the Annual Meeting. We look forward to seeing you in Tucson.
