WHAT IS THE ASOPRS FOUNDATION?

The American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstruction Surgery Foundation was established in 1999 as the philanthropic arm of the American Society of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (ASOPRS). The American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery was founded in 1969 to establish a qualified body of surgeons who have training and experience in this highly specialized field. The purpose of the Society is to advance training, research and patient care in the fields of aesthetic, plastic and reconstructive surgery of the eyelids, tear system, orbit and face. The ASOPRS Foundation is dedicated to ongoing education, humanitarian projects, and research in the field of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, locally, nationally, and internationally in harmony with the ASOPRS mission.


 

SUPPORT THE ASOPRS Foundation "GivingTuesdayNow"

 

 Dear ASOPRS Colleagues:

The Board of Trustees of the ASOPRS Foundation shares your concerns, hardships and personal struggles during this terrible pandemic. Our practices, academic institutions, and hospitals face unprecedented financial risks and we are scrambling to still be available and provide care to our patients and those in need.

As we face these times of uncertainty, we see numerous individuals and organizations coming together to stand up, help out, and give back. The ASOPRS Foundation wants to be one of these institutions to provide a unified mechanism for our members to support two deserving nonprofits that are dedicated to respond to the urgent needs around the world and help us get through this universal challenge.

Starting May 5, 2020, the ASOPRS Foundation is participating in #GivingTuesdayNow, a global day of unity and giving. We are initiating a campaign to solicit donations from you, our members, so that the Foundation can direct 100% of your contributions and then match every dollar for dollar, up to $5000, to support the emergency COVID-19 responses of Partners In Health and the CDC Foundation.  We will end this period of giving June 1st.

Partners in Health is a Boston-based organization that supports the most vulnerable and disproportionately affected countries with weak health systems around the world. The CDC Foundation is an independent nonprofit that mobilizes philanthropic and private-sector resources to support critical health protection work including funding of medical supplies and PPE, increasing lab capacity, deploying emergency staffing to public health agencies, building infrastructure for global response efforts, and boosting clinical research to improve health outcomes.

We realize many of our members are not in a financial position to make a charitable contribution at this time, but we ask those who can to contribute to this goal so we can maximize our impact to help others and combat coronavirus.

Please consider joining the movement starting on Tuesday, May 5, 2020! Kindly donate to the ASOPRS Foundation on our website, www.asoprsfoundation.org, or give through our mobile platform by texting the message “COVID” to 407-995-6283.

Thank you for being a part of the ASOPRS Foundation Team — together we can make a difference!

With respect and gratitude,

The ASOPRS Foundation Board of Directors
