2023 APSFA Giving Tree

This tree holds a special meaning for the members of the APS Foundation of America, Inc. and the community it serves.  Since the Giving Tree has been such a big success in the past, we’ve brought it back to make it an annual tradition and our main end of the year fundraiser.

How it works: Donations are made using the buttons below the tree. There is an ornament or gift that corresponds with different donation amounts. Once you have made your donation, the ornament that you picked will be added to the tree. The Giving Tree starts out bare but as the month progresses, the tree is decorated with your generous donations!! At the end of the fundraiser our tree is beautifully decorated with ornaments and gifts are spilling out from beneath it.  If you prefer to remain anonymous, please let us know.

All giving tree donations (as long as they are completed by 12/31/23) are 100% tax deductible. Donations over $200 through PayPal will get a APS tote bag from our Café Press Store valued at $16.00 while supplies last.

Please scoll down past the tree to find the ornament selections and donate buttons. Or click here to jump there.

Thank you for considering the APSFA for your holiday donations and for your continued support!

Use the buttons below to make a donation. Please allow up to 5 business days for your donation to appear on the tree.

Thank you for your support!
