ACHF Funds — Endowing the  Future

The purpose of ACHF is to provide a foundation for the future of college health. To accomplish this goal, an endowment fund has been established which, through the generosity of both individuals and organizations, will grow and increase in value to provide funding for specific projects and educational activities benefitting the field of college health. To meet the various needs of the association and to provide donors with an opportunity to support areas of interest to them, the Foundation has established a variety of separate funds.
