The IAAP Foundation's goals are: Impact- increase the Foundation's impact on advancing the role of office and administrative professionals Financial- secure and maintain adequate resources to ensure that the Foundation remains a viable, thriving organization Board Governance- establish and maintain a sustainable business model to support the Foundation's strategic direction

In partnership with the The International Association of Administrative Professionals (IAAP) we work to ensure those in the office and administrative profession have the opportunity to connect, learn, lead, and excel. The foundation supports professional development opportunities offered through IAAP in the form of scholarships and program support. We work as a team to fulfill our combined mission while supporting each individual organization's strategic objectives through leadership meetings, continuous strategic conversations, and brand promotion. Independently, the Foundation continues to identify housing needs of admins 62 and over and has dedicated fundraising activities to support and sustain financial assistance to those admins in need and also owns and operates an active, adult living community in Rio Rancho, NM that caters to those in the administrative profession. In conjunction to this work, the Foundation has a diverse fundraising framework to secure financial stability.

The Foundation has a strong strategic plan that is supported by a diverse fundraising and communication framework. Tactical execution is completed through the Foundation Board of Directors, staff, a formal volunteer group, and our association partner, IAAP.

We measure our progress both through financial and engagement metrics on a monthly, quarterly, and annual basis. We also seek qualitative data through our donors, volunteers, and leadership.

The Foundation provided 20 professional development scholarships to IAAP's annual education conference, Summit 2018. We also supported $8,246 in rent concessions in 2017-2018 for admins in need. Our active, adult community Vista Grande received many capital improvements such as energy efficient upgrades. The Foundation hired its first inaugural Executive Director. A new initiative has been kicked-off to ensure stability of volunteers and create a more structured approach that empowers others to work and advocate on behalf of the organization.
