Pediatric Research Foundation

The Pediatric Research Foundation is a 501(c)(3) support foundation which has been established by APS/SPR to help secure the future of the societies. Through this foundation, we have established a goal of raising a two million dollar endowment.

Prior to initiating our drive to raise funds from external sources, we are working towards a commitment from full membership. If you have not contributed, please take this opportunity to print the pledge form (.pdf) and join your fellow members who have offered their support.
