ACPE Foundation Mission
The mission of the ACPE Foundation is to secure funding that supports the mission and promotes innovative developments of the Association for Clinical Pastoral Education, Inc (ACPE). The foundation is responsible for development of financial resources, management of the endowment and safeguarding of ACPE assets.

You can learn more about the findings from those two projects below. Congratulations to the research team(s) for their stellar work!

The Foundation for ACPE will issue a call for proposals later this summer for research projects that advance spiritual care education, with a special emphasis on projects that further ACPE's commitment to justice, diversity, equity, and inclusion.
