NASP Children's Fund

The NASP Children's Fund is a tax-exempt, non-profit, independent charity. The Fund accepts and disburses monies for charitable purposes that are consistent with the Fund's priorities. These include:

  • Advocating for the essential rights and welfare of all children and youth;
  • Embracing individual and group differences in children and youth based upon gender and diverse ethnic, cultural, language, and experiential backgrounds;
  • Promoting learning environments which facilitate optimal development; and
  • Producing effective interventions that address both learning and social/emotional issues that impede a child's success and happiness.


The Children's Fund is administered by a board of ten trustees elected by NASP Delegates at the Delegate Assembly that occurs in conjunction with the NASP annual convention.  Two representatives are elected from each of four regions and two others are elected as at-large members.  Trustees serve staggered four-year terms.

For more information about the NASP Children's Fund, please refer to our Annual Reports (pdf) or contact one of the current members of the Board of Trustees listed below.
