WHAT IS THE EDUCATION FOUNDATION?
The ACAM Educational Foundation is a 501(c)(3), non-profit organization. The Foundation was chartered on September 21, 2005, with the purpose of advancing integrative medicine through education and advocacy. Support for the organization comes by means of charitable donations from individuals, corporations, as well as volunteer efforts. The income from these endowments is used to support the creation and dissemination of educational resources, professional development for physicians and licensed health care providers, public awareness, and other programs that enhance integrative medicine education.

The American College for Advancement in Medicine's Education Foundation seeks to educate and empower practitioners, patients, and the general public about complementary, alternative, and integrative medicine (CAIM). The foundation seeks to:

  • Provide assistance for public programs and group forums that champion patient rights through education, information, and access to CAIM therapies

  • Provide educational scholarships for medical students from accredited medical schools seeking to enhance their scope of study with programs and seminars in complementary, alternative, and integrative medicine


MISSION STATEMENT:

GIVE BIG ON MAY 4-5, 2017

ACAM's Education Foundation is participating in the nation-wide "Day of Giving". Beginning at 6PM MDT May 4th until 6PM MDT May 5th, we are asking our most loyal supporters and champions of Integrative Medicine to support our mission.  We hope that today you will consider contributing to the Integrative Medicine community through a tax deductible donation.




STOCK GIVING
Appreciated securities, such as stocks or mutual funds, are a tax-wise approach to supporting ACAM. The benefits available to you when making a contribution of stock or mutual funds may include:

  • Avoiding federal and state tax on the capital gain;
  • Receiving an income tax deduction (federal and most states) for the full market value of your gift if you itemize deductions on your tax return and have held the assets one year or longer, and make a larger gift at a lower original cost to you.

Before you make a gift of appreciated securities, however, you should consult your financial planner or tax advisor to determine how the potential tax advantages described above apply to your specific situation. To make a charitable giving, please contact ACAM at members@acam.org


ESTATE PLANNING
Including ACAM in your estate planning is one of the greatest legacies you can leave.  There is no better way to ensure that the wealth you have worked your whole life for will continue to make a difference for generations to come. Please consider joining hundreds of others in bequeathing a portion of your estate to ACAM.
