The American Psychological Foundation was established in 1953 by six psychologists, initially with a budget of $580. One of the APF's founders was Joseph McVicker Hunt, who went on to serve as its first president. Other past presidents of the foundation include Dorothy Cantor, who oversaw the initiation of two major fundraising campaigns: the Campaign for a New Era in 2000, and the Campaign to Transform the Future in 2012. Cantor was replaced by Terence M. Keane in 2017.
