Support Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion via APTA’s Campaign for Future Generations

We are using our centennial to increase fundraising in support of APTA’s diversity, equity, and inclusion activities through a two-year campaign that concludes at the end of 2021.

Net proceeds from all APTA centennial activities will support this fundraising initiative, but we are also accepting individual donations.

  • Dimensions of Diversity Fund: This new fund will support APTA’s efforts to improve diversity, equity, and inclusion within the profession and association.
  • Minority Scholarship Fund: This longstanding fund provides scholarships to PT and PTA students and faculty of ethnic and racial minorities.
  • Physical Therapy Fund: Unrestricted donations to the Physical Therapy Fund support the Dimensions of Diversity Fund or the Minority Scholarship Fund, as needed.

Our Community Wall

Those who donated at least $10 to this campaign by the end of March 2021, will have their name included on the Community Wall, to be installed on the first floor of our new headquarters. The reverse side of each colorful panel will include the etched names of individual donors. (See below for naming rules.)

The colorful panels evoke movement.
The word community becomes visible as you pass by the wall.
Donor names are visible when walking from the cafe and fitness area toward the lobby.

Naming Rules

You must donate by the end of March 2021 to be included on the Community Wall. Names cannot be added later!

The Community Wall will display only the names of individual people (not businesses or brands).

You don’t need to be an APTA member to donate.

No additional messaging can be added (there is no space for tributes or other messages).

This is an individual opportunity. Bulk purchases are not accepted.

Prior to construction we will contact the 10,000 eligible donors to confirm the desired spelling of your name. If you would like to donate in honor of someone else, you can provide that person’s name in place of yours at that time.

Additional Giving Opportunities

APTA is also raising money for the campaign through the sale of various naming rights opportunities within APTA’s new headquarters. Contact Judy Lewis, APTA senior business development specialist, if you would like to learn more: judylewis@apta.org.
