Give the Gift of ANA University Membership

The ANA Educational Foundation’s Give the Gift of ANA University Membership program allows organizations to donate an ANA membership to a school of your choice enabling both professors and students to tap into the vast network of industry programs, speakers, and curricula that the ANA and the AEF offers academia and future diverse talent.

As a member of the Give the Gift of ANA University Membership community, your company will have the opportunity to develop a mutually beneficial partnership with a college or university and engage directly with professors, speak on campus, interact with students, and become part of our exclusive ANA University Membership Committee and HBCU Campus Connect Community to network and learn from other donors and universities.

The AEF’s Give the Gift of ANA University Membership Program was recently recognized in Ad Age for the groundbreaking work our “Give the Gift” donor and university community is doing with HBCUs. Please click here to read the article.
