From its inception, the Washington Metropolitan Area Chapter of the APA has been interested in contributing to local charities, both financially  and with public service. The chapter recognizes the importance of giving back to the community, and the abundance of charitable organizations in the DC area provides ample opportunity to do so.


For 2018, WMAC has selected Chidren's National Medical Center for our Charity.


With your support, we can help the experts of Children’s National Medical Center develop therapies, find cures and improve children’s health in our community, across the nation and around the world. 

WMAC will be raising funds to help directly support the Art Therapy Program “Creative & Therapeutic Arts Services” at Children’s National Medical Center. 

We raise the money through raffle tickets are our monthly meetings. Raffle tickets cost:
