Activities involve becoming an Academy member and taking advantage of benefits that require minimal time and participation. Some of these activities include annually renewing your membership dues, signing up for AcademyU®, or giving to the ENT PAC or Millennium Society.
Show Your Support - Join the Millennium Society(Level 1)
The Foundation Board of Directors set up the Millennium Society as a community of Academy members who believe in the Foundation’s mission and provide generous support to help achieve the Foundation’s initiatives. You can attain Society membership by either making an annual gift of at least $1,000 or cumulative gifts throughout the year that equal $1,000 ($250 for residents and young physicians). As with all charitable gifts to the Foundation, your support advances the art, science, and ethical practice of our specialty. You can direct your contribution to specific areas such as research and quality, education, resident programs, and international and humanitarian outreach, or you can request our Board of Directors to apply your gift where the need is greatest.
Support ENT PAC*(Level 1)
ENT PAC, the political action committee of the AAO-HNS, gives U.S. Academy members the chance to pool their voluntary financial contributions to collectively support Members of Congress and candidates for Congressional office who champion issues vital to our specialty. ENT PAC enhances our visibility on Capitol Hill and enables the Academy to play a key role in developing healthcare policy now and for the future.
* Contributions to ENT PAC are not deductible as charitable contributions for federal income tax purposes. Contributions are voluntary, and all members of the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery have the right to refuse to contribute without reprisal. Federal law prohibits ENT PAC from accepting contributions from foreign nationals. By law, if your contributions are made using a personal check or credit card, ENT PAC may use your contribution only to support candidates in federal elections. All corporate contributions to ENT PAC will be used for educational and administrative fees of ENT PAC, and other activities permissible under federal law. Federal law requires ENT PAC to use its best efforts to collect and report the name, mailing address, occupation, and the name of the employer of individuals whose contributions exceed $200 in a calendar year.
