Leaving a Legacy 

Ensure Your Lasting Support of Good Government


The Board of the Academy thanks you, our Fellows and friends, for your commitment to public service and your generous support of NAPA’s work over the past five decades. The Academy’s Congressional charter and outstanding Fellows position our organization to make valuable contributions to emerging issues at all levels of government. Our work has helped build more effective, efficient, accountable, and transparent organizations that benefit our fellow citizens and are models for good governance across the globe.

At the same time, our work is far from done. Our country and its federal, state, and local governments are confronted by increasingly difficult issues and problems that will benefit from the trusted advice of the Academy.

Perhaps you’re like many NAPA supporters who say, “I wish I could do more.” Leaving a gift to the National Academy of Public Administration Foundation (NAPAF) through your will or trust or by beneficiary designation is an opportunity to do so. This can help ensure that your values that promote good government, producing positive results for all citizens, will continue to have impact through the Academy’s expertise.

We know that there are many worthy causes, and we are pleased that the NAPAF is one you are considering.

What is Legacy Giving?
