The AAPC Education Foundation is a 501(c)(3), tax-exempt, non-profit organization founded in 2006 to support the American system of free elections, protect the freedom of political speech and to promote these principles among those involved in the electoral process.
The Foundation is engaged in research and educational projects to advance these principles and also provides scholarship support for students preparing to enter the profession of politics. The AAPC Foundation's program is focused on providing scholarships to students interested in the field of political consulting and academic outreach to inform students about the profession.
The work of the Foundation is administered by a board of directors, all officers of the AAPC. The directors work closely with the Board of the AAPC and the Executive Director. The articles of incorporation and the Foundation's bylaws guide the administration of the AAPC Foundation, a non-profit entity.
