Supporting Our Profession

The NACAS Foundation is committed to funding the future for NACAS programs and initiatives and to provide a level of excellence made possible only through additional support.


The NACAS Foundation

We are a non-profit, charitable 501(c)(3) corporation formed for the sole purpose of supporting and promoting the auxiliary services profession through NACAS. The Foundation supports the professional development and leadership opportunities necessary for NACAS members to be successful as they support higher education through auxiliary/campus services in an ever-changing environment. Through generous support of members and business partners, the NACAS Foundation has been able to help fund new professional development programs, assist in improving technology, support scholarships, provide research funds, and support the CASP certification.

Our Mission

The NACAS Foundation shall fund scholarships and programs to enable deserving individuals that meet eligibility criteria established from time to time by the Foundation to pursue educational opportunities, promote equality and the diversity of people and ideas for the benefit of the public, and foster innovation, collaboration, and creative thinking to improve the quality of life of students.

What We Do

Fund new professional development programs, including NACAS webinars, the Emerging Professionals Academy, the Institute for Leadership & Management, the Senior Executive Summit, and CASP.

Provide funds for research and the NACAS Marketplace in order to provide support tools that better inform the industry around data and insights.
