The ASC Foundation Board is very excited to announce our 100 Years of Color anniversary campaign.  The campaign acknowledges Dr. Papanicolaou’s early papers that were first published 100 years ago in 1917 and led to the birth of cytopathology.

You are invited to attend the ASC Annual Scientific Meeting in Washington, DC to mingle with your colleagues, mentees, and friends. Our goal is to raise $75,000.  Due to the wonderful generosity of the ASC Executive Board and Foundation Board members and ASC Members, we have already raised over $42,000 toward our goal.  We would be very grateful if you would partner with us in immediate dollars or as a pledge in two installments.  We also invite you to visit our 100 Years of Color store where you can purchase commemorative gifts for yourself or to share with others to honor this historic campaign. 

It is tempting to think that a small contribution made by one member of our Society is insignificant; Dr. Papanicolaou is a testimony to the power of the individual.  Your contributions help us to stay relevant, navigate the future, and touch lives.

Let’s build on this momentum of innovation and achievement.  The future has endless possibilities; we look forward to discovering them with you.

You can direct your contribution to the following programs:


The ASC considers Advocacy as the promotion of the cytologic method for the early detection, prevention and treatment of cancer. Advocacy is directed at Professional Practice, Health Care Policy and Patients.


Education is assured through annual scientific meetings; distance learning by webinars and internet‐based technologies; maintenance and accreditation of training programs for cytotechnology and cytology‐based fellowships.


The ASC is the principal conduit for dissemination of research findings relevant to cytopathology. The ASC Foundation routinely awards grants and funding for projects that result in publications of findings relevant to the practice of cytopathology and the application of new technology.
