The Hope Campaign is ACPA’s year-end fundraising initiative to provide funding for ACPA’s programs and services that support patients affected by cleft and craniofacial conditions, their families, and the professionals who provide their care.

Your contributions help support:

  • Advocacy efforts to ensure patients not only have access to ACPA Approved Team care, but that needed care is covered by insurance.
  • Patient and family access to trusted educational resources throughout their healthcare journeys.
  • College scholarships awarded to students affected by cleft and craniofacial conditions, reducing the financial stress of college for families who have experienced years of expensive medical bills.
  • Professionals around the world have access to the latest research and clinical innovations through ACPA’s educational offerings and the Cleft Palate-Craniofacial Journal.
  • Professional scholarships allowing young professionals the opportunity to attend ACPA’s Annual Meeting to learn from seasoned professionals.
  • Collaborative relationships with strategic partners that enhance ACPA’s ability to better meet the needs of affected individuals and their families.

But hope extends beyond these areas; the hope your donation provides personally and profoundly affects the individuals born with cleft or craniofacial conditions. Your gift of hope helps move them through the extensive surgical process they and their families endure from infancy to adulthood. They deserve your support and your hope.

Give Hope through a One-Time Gift
A one-time financial gift is an immediate way to positively impact the lives of people affected by cleft and craniofacial conditions. Your gift may help a family find the resources they need to better understand their child’s condition, help a family find an interdisciplinary team to care for their child, fund a college scholarship for a student born with a cleft or craniofacial condition, support research, or bring professionals together to further the advancement of medical treatment for craniofacial differences. The ACPA is dedicated to helping patients, families, and professionals across multiple healthcare disciplines to ensure the best possible outcomes for every patient.


Give Hope through the ACPA’s President’s Circle
An annual leadership gift of $1,000 or more qualifies you as a member of ACPA’s President’s Circle and makes a tremendous impact at ACPA. These generous gifts ensure continued excellence and growth, putting our organization on top as the premiere resource for trusted information and community-building. Members enjoy many benefits, including an invitation to our annual President’s Circle Reception at ACPA’s Annual Meeting and more.


Give Hope through a Tribute Gift
Tributes in honor or in memory of someone special add personal meaning to your support of ACPA. Past gifts have included donations made in honor of a professional for their good work, as a way to recognize a friend or family member during their cleft or craniofacial journey, or to remember a loved one who has passed.


Give Hope through ACPA’s Care Club
ACPA’s Care Club lets you extend your gift of hope through small, recurring monthly donations. This provides a predictable source of income, allowing ACPA to create impactful programming. Giving a little each month makes a BIG impact.

How Your Gift Gives Hope

Your support of ACPA will help provide care to the 1 in 700 children born with cleft, and all children with a craniofacial condition, in United States each year.

Children born with a cleft lip, cleft palate, or other craniofacial conditions immediately face a variety of challenges including:

  • Difficulty eating
  • Ear infections and hearing loss
  • Dental problems
  • Speech difficulties
  • Social, emotional, and behavioral challenges

From an early age, children with cleft and craniofacial conditions face numerous surgeries, and their families encounter extensive medical bills. Each patient has a different journey, but they all cling to hope for a brighter tomorrow. You can be that shining light by supporting the Hope Campaign.
