The AAOF President’s Circle was established in 1997 to recognize donors who contribute gifts of $10,000 or more. Since its inception, the President’s Circle has grown to include over 200 individuals and corporations. We are grateful to the individuals and corporations whose support sustains the mission of the Foundation.

Contributions can be in the form of a one-time gift, planned gift, or a long-term pledge and can be restricted to a specific fund. If you are interested in becoming a member of the prestigious President's Circle, please contact Bob Gray, Development Director at or 321-319-4871.
