The AVMF provides two grant programs to help veterinarians and the animals they provide medical care for during times of disaster. Grants up to $5,000 support victims of hurricanes, floods, tornadoes, earthquakes, wildfires or oil spills. Grants up to $2,000 assist veterinarians and veterinary students who have experienced an emergency need for basic necessities due to a disaster.
The COVID-19 Disaster Relief Grant Program for Veterinarians, sponsored jointly by the American Veterinary Medical Foundation (AVMF) and VCA Animal Hospitals, has been created to assist AVMA-member veterinarians who have experienced significant financial hardship due to COVID-19.
The Veterinary Care Charitable Fund (VCCF) is a program created by the American Veterinary Medical Foundation (AVMF) to provide veterinarians with a simple and effective way to offer charitable veterinary services to clients facing personal hardships as well as a means to support animals who are injured or rescued from abuse and neglect.
AVMF is committed to helping offset the cost of veterinary medical education. Donations support outstanding veterinary students who are addressing the health and research needs of society – both today and tomorrow.
Animal health research is crucial to the future of veterinary medicine. The AVMF devotes its efforts to raising financial support for research projects that will help lead to improved prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of prevalent, life-threatening diseases in animals.
