IN MEMORY OF MARSHA SHRADER
Donations made to The American Academy for Cerebral Palsy and Developmental Medicine (AACPDM) will be used to honor Marsha Shrader through an organization that is near and dear to the Shrader family.
Marsha Shrader - July 27, 1947 – January 18, 2023
AACPDM STRATEGIC FUND
The Strategic Fund is a long-term fund that is similar to the Endowment Fund (see below), but has the flexibility to allow unrestricted spending for AACPDM projects and initiatives that support the mission of the AACPDM. This is the preferred fund for your donations.
AACPDM ENDOWMENT FUND
The Endowment Fund is the “long-term” fund that is similarly invested as the Strategic Fund (see above) but allows only the interest earned on the fund’s value to be spent on projects that align with mission of the AACPDM.
ANGEL WING FUND
Help support young investigators or colleagues that reside outside North America to attend the AACPDM Annual Meeting by giving them “wings”.
As an Angel Wing Supporter, your donation will assist in funding the AACPDM Student and International Scholarships! Our scholarships offer researchers and clinicians from around the world a chance to attend our Annual Meeting that they might not otherwise have. AACPDM believes that encouraging these members to attend our Annual Meeting ultimately improves the care of people who have childhood-onset disabilities by providing access to evidence-based research and inter-professional care for as many healthcare providers as possible.
CHAMBERS CHALLENGE - Dr. Hank Chambers
Join Hank and Jill Chambers by supporting the AACPDM, the Academy that you know and love, now in its 75th year, through your donation. To kick it off, Hank and Jill have generously offered to match dollar for dollar the first $30k donated!
You can 'designate' the effort that you prefer to support (please keep in mind that this does not bind the Academy to that choice in the event there are insufficient resources to complete the specified project).
Donate to the 2023-24 Transformative Practice Award
Each dollar donated to the Transformative Practice Award will be matched by a donor to provide a grant that will enhance capacity of service providers to apply evidence-based clinical strategies into practice to advance the health and well-being of individuals with cerebral palsy and other childhood-onset disabilities.
