About ASLAP Foundation

The mission of the ASLAP Foundation is to secure the future of our practice specialty through our involvement with and education of today's veterinary students. The ASLAP Foundation was incorporated in the State of Illinois in May of 2005 and is registered with the IRS as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. The purpose of the Foundation is to provide awards and fellowships to veterinary students who have demonstrated an interest in the practice of laboratory animal medicine. Thanks to the generous support of Pfizer the Foundation is able to provide awards to deserving veterinary students from each veterinary school. Thanks to the sponsorship of the American Association for Laboratory Animal Science (AALAS), the Association for the Assessment and Accreditation of Laboratory Animal Care International (AAALAC), the Association of Primate Veterinarians (APV), Bristol-Myers Squibb, Pfizer and GalxoSmithKline in 2011 the Foundation's fellowship program supported awards made to eight institutions supporting eleven summer fellows.

The ASLAP Foundation seeks 100% participation of the ASLAP membership. We hope that as a member of ASLAP you will make the Foundation a part of your annual giving plan. The future of our practice specialty is dependent upon attracting more veterinary students to the field and the Foundation's focused outreach effort to veterinary students gives ASLAP and its membership the opportunity to contribute to the long term success of our specialty.

The Foundation Board has established four levels of recognition for donors. For corporate donors those levels are:

  • Platinum for contributions of $10,000 and greater,
  • Gold for contributions of $5,000 and greater, ,
  • Silver for contributions of $2,500 and greater and
  • Bronze for contributions of $1,000 and greater.

For individual donations those levels are:

  • Platinum for contributing $1000 or greater,
  • Gold for contributing $500-999,
  • Silver for contributing $250-500 and
  • Bronze for contributing $100-249.

Your donation to the ASLAP Foundation will directly benefit students who are interested in pursuing laboratory animal medicine as a career. Investing in their future will ensure the future of our specialty and allow us all to rest assured that what we have built will continue in the future and be in good hands; hands belonging to laboratory animal veterinarians who were helped along as students by the ASLAP Foundation.
