Through your own success and your investment in students and other higher education professionals, you have already established a legacy of excellence.  You can continue to build this legacy after your lifetime of service through a charitable bequest or planned gift to ACPA. The gift can be a modest amount.  It’s easy and flexible.  

Perhaps you are interested in helping the work of ACPA, but are concerned about giving up assets today.  Planned giving is a viable option to continue your commitment to the next generation of students and professionals.

Paying It Back

Bill Bryan Headshot

I invest in ACPA because… it offered me over the years (1961-1998) what I needed as a maturing professional. My bequest to the Foundation is my way of repaying ACPA for all that I have gained; I realize I will never be able to do this.
