Purpose

District VIII Founders Education Foundation Fund:

A “Gift Agreement” document drafted and approved by a unanimous vote of the District VIII Council became a legal document in 2006. This established the “Founders Education Foundation Fund” and provided binding rules for the receipt and disbursement of funds for the educational purposes laid out in the document.

After a fund-raising goal is met, it is anticipated that a specified portion of the annual investment profits will be applied primarily to the cost of bringing neonatal fellows and other individuals in training to the annual conference. Currently active trainee support from the District is in excess of $10,000 per meeting.  The ultimate goal is for this and expanded fellow and trainee support be fully funded by the Foundation and that it be fully self sustaining.

All donations to the AAP District VIII Foundation are fully tax deductible. Donations of any amount add up !
