Arizona Veterinary Medical Foundation
The AzVMA has launched the Arizona Veterinary Medical Foundation (AzVMF), that will initially focus on providing scholarships for Arizona veterinary students enrolled in an AVMA accredited college of veterinary medicine to help offset the cost of a veterinary medical education.
The Arizona Veterinary Medical Foundation will present five one-thousand dollar scholarships to third-year students in its 2019 inaugural year, with the intent of expanding its services to include disaster relief and other veterinary needs.
AzVMA members will have the opportunity to support the foundation through contributions that will be tax deductible to the extent of the law. A web page is also being developed which will allow for donations online.
AzVMA invites and encourages the veterinary community to support the effort to invest in students of veterinary medicine and to sustain the foundation so it can serve the profession through the delivery of services designed to advance veterinary practice.
