The A. Phillip Randolph Educational Fund (APREF) is a nonprofit organized to support the actions and goals of the larger A. Phillip Randolph Institute, which serves as an outreach group to African Americans on behalf of the AFL-CIO and organized labor unions generally.

Political Activities

While ostensibly an educational fund, large portions of the Fund’s income is spent on election fundraising. Much of the funds earmarked for electioneering are funneled through local chapters of the APREF. 1

In 2016 the APREF received $169,030 in revenue. Of that, $57,520 was spent on voter participation activities, while at least $51,300 was funneled to local and state branches of the A. Phillip Randolph Institute. 2

Overall, the APREF and the APRI are highly intertwined, sharing the same president, Clayola Brown. 3
