About the Foundation

Mission Statement

The mission of the American College Health Foundation (ACHF) is to promote, improve and advance the health, well-being and overall success of college students. The ACHF will accomplish this mission by funding sustainable college health initiatives and programs, including education, research, advocacy and professional development in partnership with the American College Health Association and its members.

Why have a foundation?

The foundation's sole purpose is to support the field of college health and the mission of ACHA. In 1995, ACHF began the process of building an endowment fund, which will provide ACHA with additional support in perpetuity. The foundation supports projects and activities that would not otherwise be funded through traditional revenue sources. 

Who oversees the foundation?

ACHF operations are governed by a board of directors separate from that of the association. Board members are responsible for the financial security of the foundation. They serve on a voluntary basis and are not compensated for expenses incurred in the performance of their duties.
