Promoting excellence in cytopathology has been a goal of the American Society of Cytopathology (ASC) since 1951. This year marks the 17th year of the ASC Foundation, and the ASC Foundation continues to strive to help promote the highest quality in patient care.

The primary functions of the ASC Foundation are to fund the Society’s programs and expand its endowment to assure fiduciary responsibilities to the mission, membership and the public, as it insures the Society’s financial stability. Educational scholarships to attend the Annual Scientific Meeting, research grants to create new knowledge that advances the discipline of cytopathology and advocacy work to bring cytologic screening to the underserved are just a few examples of the good works made possible through gifts to the Foundation.

It is through the dedication of the ASC Foundation Board, Executive Board, Committees, our members, our staff, volunteers, and generous supporters that the accomplishments of the Society are met.

More information on the programs described is available on the ASC Foundation Website.
