Support the AUGS Foundation Research Fund — Make a Donation
Since 1998, the AUGS Foundation has funded more than $1.3 million in grants to support junior researchers in the field and promises innovative research regarding the causes, prevention, cure, and treatment of pelvic floor disorders.
Our goal is a bold one — to reach $1 million in just two years for an endowment to protect our research grants program for the future — but the ability to generate substantial investment income gives us the resources needed to advance research in our field and encourage a new generation of colleagues.
Every contribution to the AUGS Foundation builds a stronger future for Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery and is a great way to honor the work and passion of those we respect. We are grateful to our donors for their generous support of the AUGS Foundation.
