General Fund

The ASCP Foundation provides you with a way to advance diagnostic medicine and public health across the globe. The ASCP Foundation is focused on making a difference in three critical areas:

·        Improving Global Health.

·        Supporting Emerging Laboratory Leaders.

·        Promoting Recognition of Diagnostic Medicine.

Contributions to the ASCP Foundation’s general fund will be directed by ASCP to the areas most in need.

Global Health Fund

The ASCP Foundation’s Global Health Fund will support ASCP’s Partners for Cancer Diagnosis and Treatment in Africa initiative, which is providing diagnostics in countries where access to pathologists or medical laboratories is virtually non-existent. The Foundation will support Partners by helping to cover the costs associated with establishing and enhancing labs and training local personnel.


Laboratory Visibility Fund

ASCP Foundation’s Laboratory Visibility Fund will support public relations and advertising campaigns designed specifically to tell your story – and the story of the laboratory. Medical laboratories are the unsung heroes of health care, and it is time for that to change. The Foundation wants to ensure that your work is well understood, respected, and valued by your colleagues, insurers, government, and the public.


Scholarship Fund

The ASCP Foundation’s Scholarships Fund will provide financial support to outstanding pathology residents to help them expand their knowledge, skills, and professional network, and it will assist clinical laboratory students through scholarships for books and tuition. The Foundation will also provide grants to Medical Laboratory Science Program Directors to support the purchase of education-related materials and other training resources.
