THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT ON #GIVINGTUESDAY 
On November 28, #GivingTuesday, our members joined together to donate a generous $5,130 between 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM ET for the APGO Academic Scholars and Leaders Program Frank T. Stritter, PhD Endowed Faculty Fund. And with APGO matching donations, that means we were able to add a grand total of $10,260 to the fund!

We are humbled and grateful for your support. We know this is a special and valuable program, and your enthusiasm and generosity tells us that you do, too. Thank you for continued support of APGO and all that you do for women’s health education.

As the ASL 20th anniversary continues, there will be other opportunities to donate. We hope the spirit of generosity and giving exhibited by our members and friends on #GivingTuesday inspires you to consider a gift to support the APGO Academic Scholars and Leaders Program this holiday season.

Donate to the ASL 20th Anniversary campaign now and follow along to track our progress!
