ACMGF: Accelerating Transformation through Fund Development

As the fundraising arm of the American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics, the ACMG Foundation for Genetic and Genomic Medicine (ACMGF) serves as the conduit for change through raising financial support for existing initiatives that promote the work of the organization in three primary areas: (1) Clinical Laboratory Practice, (2)Education and (3) Advocacy.

ACMGF is dedicated to accelerating the transformation of the study of genetics and genomics in these areas through its extensive partnerships and resources. These resources include members, industry professionals and others.  further defined by eight critical funding priorities: NIPS/ Prenatal, Rare Disease, Newborn Screening (NBS), Training, Expanded Carrier Screening (ECS), Gene Editing, Genomics Sequencing and Cancer/Oncology. The ACMGF Annual Fund Campaign helps to fund the work in these areas, as well as to build capacity of the organization to help leverage general operating capital for its various programs and initiatives.

As stated by ACMG Executive Director, Michael Watson, PhD, FACMG, "Geneticist are essential to the diagnosis and management of rare disease care...unfortunately, we are faced with a significant deficit in the number of geneticists in the United States; but with your support ACMG is able to offer a vital training, fellowships and mentoring to aspiring genetic and genomic professionals. Together, we can achieve this and much more."

With your support, ACMG and ACMGF are working well together, hand and hand,  to make a difference and long-term impact in the lives of patients, families, industry and others.
