AACAP 25th Founder's Anniversary, Hotel Del Coronado, San Diego, CA, 1978
In tribute to the 90 pioneers and visionaries who organized as the American Academy of Child Psychiatry (11 of them pictured above), and elected its first officers February 25, 1953, the Development Department has established the 1953 Society, in celebration of AACAPs 60th Anniversary.
The 1953 Society will be AACAPs program for honoring and thanking members and friends of AACAP who have arranged a bequest or estate gift to the Academy.
A bequest or estate gift may be the most important charitable investment you ever make. For so many people, it is their single largest donation. To the beneficiary organization, it is the source of capital that is so important to continue advancing its vision well into the future. For the Academy, that means changing the future for today's children with mental illness. And, as child and adolescent psychiatrists, you are the solution to achieve this future for children.
Which is why, your legacy is their future.
You have an opportunity to change the world for the next generation of child and adolescent psychiatrists by joining the 1953 Society. Your decision to do this is an investment in that future, today.
Alan Mark Ezagui, MHCA, Deputy Director of Development
