Philanthropy

The AAP Friends of Children Fund has a permanent booth at the conference and encourages all contribute to support high-priority projects including access to child health programs, quality improvement initiatives, and public information campaigns on issues such as immunization awareness, violence prevention, obesity, and disaster relief.
 
Since 1989, the Friends of Children Fund has provided over $8 million in support for these and other AAP projects. Conference attendees are also encouraged to participate in the annual 5K Friends of Children Fund Run/Walk.
