The AmSECT Foundation's scope encompasses educational support, scientific research, recognition of significant professional achievement, and support to other nonprofit organizations whose activities are in consonance with the Foundation's purpose.
There are currently two programs in the process of being implemented by 2004:
Professional Recognition. This fund supports the recognition of extraordinary professional accomplishments that ultimately benefit patient care.
Personal Assistance Fund. This fund is for short-term loans at nominal interest to AmSECT members who are experiencing financial distress that is not the result of personal financial mismanagement or deficiencies in personal behavior.
Detailed information about these programs can be obtained by contacting the Foundation's National Office.
The AmSECT Foundation accepts both unrestricted and restricted donations. A restricted gift specifies exactly the terms and conditions under which use of the proceeds may be conducted. The restriction may be one of purpose, e.g., research only, amount, criteria, or combinations. While restricted gifts are welcome, they can be more difficult to administer. Unrestricted gifts are made with no terms regarding their use as long as it is within the Foundation's charter.
The Foundation welcomes gifts of any amount. All contributors will receive acknowledgement, suitable for tax purposes, and public recognition unless otherwise requested.
There are also a variety of other ways to support the Foundation's programs. The Foundation's legal and tax planning counsels are available to respond to questions regarding estate planning, endowments, trusts, and designated beneficiaries for insurance, to name only some of the possibilities.
