About the IAAP Foundation

The IAAP Foundation (“Foundation”) is a Kansas City, Missouri-based independent 501(c)(3) organization and a charitable partner of the International Association of Administrative Professionals (IAAP). Our mission is to invest in the success of office and administrative professionals by supporting innovative research, education, and professional development opportunities and affordable housing initiatives. IAAP is the premier network and resource for the administrative profession. The association is a vibrant community of professionals who seek knowledge, skills, and insights from the association that build toward career advancement, success, and recognition.

Together, IAAP and the Foundation serve as a leading catalyst for advancing the administrative profession on a global stage. The Foundation’s rich history spans nearly 75 years, and its organizational structure and mission have evolved over time in response to the needs of the administrative profession and IAAP.

The Foundation is a supporting organization and the philanthropic arm of IAAP. The Foundation is governed by an independent, volunteer board of directors elected by the IAAP membership. Two full time staff positions – a Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and a Foundation Specialist – are responsible for the day-to-day operations with additional support from other IAAP staff through a Management and Administrative Services Agreement. The Foundation’s annual budget is funded through distributions from the Della Herring Trust, as well as tax-deductible contributions from individual, corporate, and other foundation donors.
