Who We Are
The LAFP Foundation serves as the philanthropic arm of the Louisiana Academy of Family Physicians. Its mission is to cultivate career choice in the specialty of family medicine. The Foundation is a 501 (c) (3) charitable organization and supports programs and activities that build a strong family medicine workforce for Louisiana each year. All of the Foundation’s efforts are made possible through the donations of family physicians, partnerships, and others who provide voluntary financial support for the Foundation. Through the generous contributions of members, corporations and friends, the Foundation is able to raise and distribute funds for medical student scholarships to future family physicians, for research, for family medicine student interest group activities at medical schools in Louisiana and for family medicine resident activities. It also receives support from the American Academy of Family Physicians Foundation and the AAFP Foundation Family Medicine Philanthropic Consortium. The Foundation regularly communicates with LAFP members to provide information on programs and scholarship opportunities.
