Endowments, Scholarships, Awards and our General Fund allow the Foundation of the AAGL to further educational and scientific independence, promote quality, and ensure financial stability.
In recognition of varied interests, available giving opportunities include—but are not limited to—scholarships to send residents or fellows to the AAGL Annual Congress; awards for the top research in minimally invasive gynecology; support for mentors of gynecologic surgeons of the future; recognition for best new instrumentation; and more!
Endowments are restricted with the principal held in perpetuity, while the earnings from the invested assets are expended per the donor’s specification. Endowments are governed by a minimum corpus of $25,000; only the residual interest is spent to fund endowed awards. Scholarships have fewer restrictions but are no-less impactful in terms of honoree recognition and practice advancement. The day to day operations of the Foundation are powered by our General Fund.
