Foundation of the American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology

Dedicated to advancing education and research

The Foundation of the American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology develops, promotes and funds clinical research and educational programs related to allergy, asthma & immunology.  A not-for-profit, charitable 501(c)3 organization, the Foundation is dedicated to:

  • Strengthening, supporting and funding allergy/immunology training programs.
  • Heightening awareness of the critical role of the allergist in cost-effective treatment of asthma and other allergic and immunologic diseases.
  • Supporting young faculty allergy and asthma research programs.

Why Do We Need the Foundation?

While the number of asthma patients is expected to double over the next 25 years, cutbacks in Graduate Medical Education funding have substantially reduced the number of accredited allergy/immunology training programs. Because of this, it is projected that we will soon train only enough qualified allergists to meet just 60% of the nation’s needs. As a result, funding to support the specialty is more important than ever.

To date, the Foundation has provided more than $2,200,000 to fund specialty-related programs that otherwise might cease to exist. These programs have included emergency funding to A/I training programs, young faculty support awards, scholar’s return awards and support for asthma camps. The bottom line is that the Foundation does make a difference.
