Allegheny County Medical Society Foundation
Healthy Children. Healthy Communities. Healthy Future.
Instituted in 1960, ACMS started the Foundation with donations from the polio immunization program. The immunization effort was undertaken by ACMS and the Allegheny County Health Department, and sparked a public outpouring of donations collected in jars on the streets of Pittsburgh.
The Foundation has since given $2.26 million back to the community.
While so much has changed since that early start, so much remains the same for those the ACMS Foundation seeks to serve. Zeroing in on core issues the Foundation could potentially impact, the ACMS Foundation, not surprisingly, found that an increasing number of health issues affecting families and their communities arise from their home environments.
