"I had the pleasure of serving on the APF board when the decision was taken to make APF known more fully to the members of APA and to begin to build its resources and its endowment. We envisioned the development of a vital, responsible, and forward-looking foundation. We envisioned a foundation that would enable psychologists to 'give back' and to support programs and students and young professionals. It is gratifying to see that all of what we hoped would evolve has become reality.
And thus it is that today, when I contribute to APF, I am giving back and expressing my personal gratitude for having had a productive life and career in psychology. Leaving a bequest to APF was my way of insuring that this expression of gratitude would continue. And when I read about the programs that our contributions enable APF to sponsor, I see the hopes for what APF would become being realized in very meaningful ways."
