2020 MEMBERSHIP APPRECIATION
WAMFT appreciates its members! Without membership, we could not support the health of our MFT community in Washington State and offer opportunities to network, educate, and advocate for the advancement of our marriage and family therapy field.
2020 Virtual Membership Appreciation Week
Thank you for participating in the 2020 WAMFT Membership Appreciation week! We celebrated and raised money for students and advocacy work in our field in a different way each day!
Some of the activities and events we held included:
CE Opportunities around creative journal writing & DEI+I
Opportunity to connect with our lobbyist
Debut of WAMFT's New Historical Video (see above)
These events were fun, informative, provided opportunities to connect with colleagues, learn more about our history, and - of course - fundraise. In total, we managed to raise $4800, all of which will go towards student scholarships awards and our advocacy fund.
Emerging Professionals Fund
Contribute to the WAMFT Emerging Professionals Fund and support Student Scholarships, education, and leadership development of WAMFT student & pre-clinical / associate members.
The Washington Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (WAMFT) is a 501(c)(6) nonprofit, charitable organization.

Contribute to the WAMFT Advocacy Fund and support advocacy activities, education, and contract lobbyist Lewis Consulting LLC who advocate on behalf of ALL MFTs in WA State.
WAMFT is not a 501c3, so donations are not deductible as a charitable contribution for income tax purposes. Payments to the WAMFT Advocacy Fund may be deductible as a business expense. However, IRS regulations limit the deduction based on the association's lobbying expenses. Consult your tax adviser regarding issues with tax deductions.
As this was our first virtual event of this sort, we were ecstatic to see about 80 WAMFT members attend our various events. Without your participation, we could not support the health of our MFT community in Washington State and offer opportunities to network, educate, and advocate for the advancement of our marriage and family therapy field. If you didn’t get a chance to watch the historical video, please check it out here. You will learn more about WAMFT's journey but also the importance of donating.
