As a breast cancer survivor I have learned never to procrastinate. One of my unfulfilled goals in life was receiving my college degree. Because of the financial assistance from the Foundation, I completed my B.A. and am pursing a Master’s Degree – an asset that will open many doors for me in the mortgage industry.

Mortgage Industry



Originally formed as The APMW Foundation, an IRS designated Charitable Corporation. We now celebrate our Twenty-fifth Anniversary with an expanded mission and new name as the Mortgage Industry Foundation, supporting education of professionals at all levels of the industry as well as the communities they serve.

The Foundation serves professionals seeking to enter or advance in mortgage lending and its related fields; and, we support community education programs to encourage responsible home-ownership. We are unique in our support of both consumer and professional education in mortgage borrowing and lending. Since 1992 the Foundation has awarded more than $80,000 in grants to 300 individuals and programs ranging from continuing education and college degrees to funding for those who were striving to enter or advance in the profession.
