APSA Foundation

The APSA Foundation is a source of essential funds to promote education and biomedical research in pediatric surgery. It has served as a gateway for young scientific investigators to become competitive for major external grants. Many previous APSAF scholars have successfully used their seed grants to acquire NIH funding and clearly provide justification of the tremendous return on investment experienced by the Foundation.

The APSA Foundation is recognized as a tax exempt 501(c)(3) charitable organization. All gifts to the Foundation are tax deductible to the extent provided by law.
