OPA Foundation – 501C3
The Organization for Professional Astrology (OPA) was originally a non-profit organization 501C6 that advanced the cause of professional astrology by helping students and practicing astrologers receive the information, insights, and experiences they need to foster their understanding of astrology, launch a professional practice, or enhance their development.
This organization still exists to oversee membership benefits and to award OPA Professional Astrologer certification to qualified members.
As of 2022, we have now incorporated as a 501C3 Foundation to increase accessible high quality astrological education for the community.
Slowly we have been separating the activities of the two organizations between Membership/Certification and all Foundation/Educational activities, including webinars, conferences and retreats.
501C3 and 501C6 Separation of Roles
OPA Foundation’s 501C3 focus is education for all levels of astrologers, from beginners, serious students and professionals, while the 501C6 side focuses on offering great benefits to membership and offers professional certification upon completion of prescribed immersion trainings offered by the 501C3 Foundation and other organizations.
“We focus on making astrology accessible, credible, and sustainable. We celebrate astrology’s diversity, creating excellent quality content available to the community, elevating standards of practice, and providing guidance for professional astrologers to sustain themselves financially. We cultivate heart centered bonding and community connections.
We are a family, we are friends, and we live in different nations. Together we promote excellence in the field of astrology, and we support astrology as a strong, valued, respected profession.”
