Contribute to the Education Advocacy Trust

Why Your Contribution Matters

Without your support, the psychology education and training community’s efforts to build legislative support for quality psychology education, including the allocation of funds to federal grant programs that directly support psychology education and training, will continue to be hindered. In addition, access to key policymakers in an effort to promote psychology as an essential health profession and integral to an efficient, effective, integrated approach to health care will be limited, as Education Directorate staff cannot fully engage in the political process necessary to advance psychology’s agenda without this legal mechanism in place.
