The Division 16 Legacy Fund
The National Institutes of Health, National Institute of Mental Health, and other Federal agencies looking at child mental health continue to designate children as one of the top ten most underserved populations in our country. School psychology, which is truly the lifeline of public mental health for children and adolescents, has seen reductions in funding in constant dollars over the last decade, despite population growth in numbers and in need. As such, the Committee on Professional and Corporate Sponsorship of School Psychology (CPCSSP) was developed in Spring 2017 to assist the Division of School Psychology Executive Committee in developing a legacy capital endowment to ensure the survival of the APA Division of School Psychology, and its ability to advocate for children and for mental health and integrated services in the nations’ schools.
The CPCSSP is charged with soliciting Professional and Corporate Sponsorships for the Division. Members of the Committee must have themselves purchased a minimum Professional Sponsorship in the amount of $2,500.00 to be on the Committee as an indication of their realization of the seriousness of the issue and their commitment to School Psychology and children in the schools.
When the Division is registered as a fundraising group, the CPCSSP committee will encourage individuals to provide a charitable contribution to the Division.
