AALAS and the AALAS Foundation are two separate organizations. Your AALAS dues pay for member services such as publications, the National Meeting, and the AALAS web site access. The AALAS Foundation raises money to provide funding for public outreach and educational projects relating to laboratory animal science, which are not funded by your membership dues.
Contact the AALAS Foundation by phone (901-754-8620), mail (9190 Crestwyn Hills Drive, Memphis, TN 38125-8538) or e-mail (foundation@aalas.org). Our web site offers a wealth of information about the many resources and programs we offer. You can also stop by our booth at the AALAS National Meeting; we would be happy to discuss with you some of the projects we have sponsored and/or developing and answer any questions you may have.
The AALAS Foundation is YOUR Foundation. Your contribution tells others that you are ready to do your part to help the profession. Your donation helps to support the laboratory animal science profession in many ways, and the AALAS Foundation works hard to ensure the projects we develop and implement are worthy of your support.
The AALAS Foundation encourages you to use our materials for public outreach programs and for education and training. If you have a special interest, an idea for a public outreach project, or would like to work with the AALAS Foundation, contact us at foundation@aalas.org.
Donations to the General Fund are used for nonspecific programs within the AALAS Foundation’s mission and to fund some of the various operating expenses of the AALAS Foundation. Donations to the Endowment Fund are invested in a perpetual endowment that will provide ongoing support of the AALAS Foundation’s mission and work.
