In 2020, the Urology Care Foundation is pleased to announce two new global philanthropic initiatives – The Urology Care Foundation Humanitarian Recognition Award and The Urology Care Foundation Humanitarian Grant Program. Both aim to recognize and support the many urology-specific humanitarian missions carried out around the world.
Urology Care Foundation Humanitarian Award
The Urology Care Foundation Humanitarian Recognition Award aims to acknowledge an individual for their demonstrated commitment to improving access to quality urologic health care in underserved populations. This award will be bestowed upon an individual who exemplifies this spirit of philanthropy as evidenced by prior humanitarian work.
Consideration may be given to the nature and scope of contributions; frequency and duration of involvement; positive changes or results to communities, facilities or programs; and contributions toward sustainability in impoverished areas either within or outside of the United States.
Award recipients will be recognized at the American Urological Association’s Annual Meeting beginning September 2021.
Urology Care Foundation Humanitarian Grant Program
The Urology Care Foundation Humanitarian Grant Program will provide funding to support the outstanding efforts of individuals and projects that provide direct urologic patient care to individuals and communities in underserved areas, either within the United States or abroad. In the spirit of true humanitarianism, the new Foundation Humanitarian Grant Program aims to support those who give themselves without expectation of remuneration and provide services to all equally, impartially and cooperatively.
Grants will be given to AUA members who are pursuing significant and outstanding contributions to urology-specific humanitarian missions or efforts to improve patient care. Consideration will be given to the nature and scope of contributions; frequency and duration of involvement; positive changes and results for communities, facilities and programs; as well as contributions toward sustainability.
