One of the hallmarks of a life well lived is giving back to make it better than you found it. With generosity, a plot of land becomes a community garden; a dilapidated building becomes a food bank; and a mental health profession becomes more robust and diverse.

Since 1977, the CAMFT Educational Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization, has awarded nearly $150,000 in scholarships and grants. Today, the need to create a more diverse mental health workforce has never been greater, and scholarships and grants help make the dream of licensure as a marriage and family therapist a reality for many.


Please consider making contribution to allow the Educational Foundation to continue its legacy of awarding scholarships and grants to the next generation of marriage and family therapists! All contributions are 100% tax deductible.
