This year's annual #AICPGives drive benefiting organizations in each Chapter of the AICP membership provides options for both monetary/virtual donations, as well as in-person food and goods drives. Participating chapters have partnered with local organizations serving their communities. Our membership and friends are encouraged to donate directly to these local organizations and/or participate in local drives via the links below.
#AICPGives was Launched in 2012 in Los Angeles by the AICP West Board, before expanding to other cities and chapters. Below, please find links from each Chapter’s designated recipient, which are accepting direct donations as well as providing wish lists of items that can be purchased on behalf of an organization.
