AICP College of Fellows Fund

The AICP Commission and College of Fellows Committee established the AICP College of Fellows Fund to honor Fellows' commitment to lead the planning profession.

As longtime members of AICP, Fellows have achieved excellence in professional practice, teaching and mentoring, research, and community service and leadership. Their individual efforts have had significant impacts on and made transformational improvements to the field of planning and the communities they have served. Contributions to this fund — the first one created by AICP Fellows — will continue and build on their legacy for the planning profession.

Once contributions to the fund reach $50,000, income from subsequent investments will be allocated to the APA Foundation's three priority initiatives — community assistance, research, and scholarships.

As leaders in the planning profession, it's important that Fellows leave a legacy to continue shaping the profession — in perpetuity. I hope you'll join us by contributing to the Fellows Fund of the APA Foundation — the only foundation exclusively dedicated to advancing the planning profession.
—Bruce Knight, FAICP; Planning and Development Director, City of Champaign
