Why is your philanthropic support needed?

Annual membership dues covers roughly one-third of the operational costs of the Academy. An unrestricted annual gift provides much needed non-dues revenues to support the mission of the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery/Foundation (AAO-HNS/F) by funding many of the programs and services delivered.

Contributions of $1,000 or greater qualify as Millennium Society support.

The Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization Tax ID 52-1219434; as such gifts to the AAO-HNSF are fully tax-deductible to the extent of current IRS regulations.
