Northwest Association of College & University Housing Officers

ACUHO-I Foundation

ACUHO-I Foundation Information

The ACUHO-I Foundation Trustees, working in concert with the ACUHO-I Executive Board, has aligned its structure and operations to actively engage the ACUHO-I membership in fundraising efforts. Critical to this effort is the work of the Regional Cabinet. Regional representatives engage in active fundraising throughout the year, and serve as liaisons between their individual region and the Foundation. Their conference activities, as well as year-round stewardship, serve to connect regional members with the important work of both the Foundation and NWACUHO.

Like NWACUHO, ACUHO-I established the ACUHO-I Foundation to enhance our impact by creating innovations and opportunities that strengthen our profession.

While the association’s resources cover the costs of member benefits and operations, the ACUHO-I Foundation funds transformative initiatives to expand our reach even further and positively impact a universal community of campus housing and residential life professionals—and ultimately the students who call campus home.

For more than 30 years, the ACUHO-I Foundation has made a difference in the lives of current and aspiring professionals by funding some of ACUHO-I’s most pioneering programs and projects, including the National Housing Training Institute (NHTI), STARS College, on Online Learning platform, the 21st Century Project, and the Campus Housing Index.

Through its funding of large-scale research initiatives and benchmarking studies, the Foundation helps to deliver tangible resources that help our members make better decisions for their home institutions and promote how on-campus living affects the student experience. The Foundation also makes pivotal educational experiences available to more people in our profession by providing financial support through awards, grants, and scholarships.

As a 501©3 nonprofit organization, the ACUHO-I Foundation receives donations from people and corporate partners in the ACUHO-I community—all of you–who know firsthand the impact that campus housing and residential life has on students.
