Students graduating from the Penn Masters of Applied Positive Psychology program often have big dreams about launching programs to benefit particular communities.   Sometimes these dreams emerge immediately, and sometimes they evolve out of practical experience after MAPP.

The MAPP Alumni Association has been running a grant program for several years to help make these dreams become reality.

We are now ready to invite others to contribute  to help MAPP alumni have bigger impacts on the world.

There are three ways to contribute:

  1. donation with no expectation of return other than the thanks of the community.

  2. Book Sponsorship.  In this case, a picture of your book and a link to where it can be purchased will appear on the MAPP home page and in the MAPP newsbriefs.

  3. Service Sponsorship (MAPP-owned and Otherwise):   These could come from any organization, but we anticipate that they will be most appealing to businesses that target people in the MAPP community and others with a strong interest in positive psychology.  For example, these draw the attention of our community members to certificate programs that MAPP graduates have pursued in the past.

    If you choose a service sponsorship, we will ask you to provide us with an image representing your service and a link to your web page so we can add it to our sponsor list on our web page.   To see an example of what your sponsorship on the website would look like, scroll to the bottom of the ICF-RAC web page to see their chapter sponsor section.  We will send you size specifications for the image after you donate.

    A smaller version of the image and the link will be added to the footer of the NewsBriefs that go out to the MAPP community regularly.  

All levels can be recurring donations. 

The goal is $20,000.  The goal tracker below show $17,800 as the goal because $2,200 has been donated with event registrations.
