ACOG Foundation - Development Fund

Michelle Owens I support the Development Fund because it provides another way for me to share my passion for Women's Health.  Through advocacy, education, and physician support, ACOG touches every area of women's health in the Americas and across the globe.  I see my contribution as an investment in a future of excellent healthcare for women everywhere.- Michelle Y. Owens, MD

What Your Donation Supports

Membership dues only account for 35% of our annual budget, making donations to the College an invaluable financial component in our ability to participate in and initiate new programs and projects that would otherwise be out of reach.  Past contributions have supported an array of important activities including those for underserved women, the Council on Patient Safety in Women’s Health Care, reVITALize,  and tool kits on tobacco use in pregnancy. View ACOG's Donor Report for more information. So, which Society is right for you?

Please Note: Contributions to the ACOG Foundation are considered charitable donations and are fully tax-deductible to the extent allowed by applicable law.

For Beacham and President’s Society Members who attend the Annual Meeting, your charitable donation is limited to the amount of your gift less the value of registration. This $600.00 decrease may still qualify as a tax-deductible business expense under IRS regulations and we encourage you to consult your tax advisor. If however, you receive complimentary registration through another College activity or responsibility, your donation is fully tax deductible. For President’s Society members bringing a spouse, your tax deductibility would decrease by an additional $190.00.
