Program Overview

The Family Medicine Philanthropic Consortium (FMPC) and its Grant Awards program is a collaborative program of the AAFP Foundation and the 55 AAFP Constituent Chapters and their Foundations. The applicant must be a Chapter or Chapter Foundation of the American Academy of Family Physicians and a 501(c)(3) organization or a 501(c)(6) organization.

FMPC Grant Awards: Guiding Principles and Process(4 page PDF) provides an overview of the program. This document includes background information, goals, guiding principles used to focus the deliberation of the proposals, and a step-by-step outline of the grant award process. 

Since 2006, the FMPC Grant Awards program has provided $1,166,670 to support 320 projects from AAFP Constituent Chapter/Chapter Foundations in 41 states.

FMPC Priority Areas

Proposed projects should align with one of the following FMPC priority areas:

  • Student and/or Resident project: Focuses on education, research, and/or humanitarian opportunities for students (high school, undergraduate, or medical students) and/or Family Medicine residents.
  • Member Outreach project: Focuses on education, research, and/or humanitarian opportunities that target AAFP Family Physician members.
  • Public Health project: Focuses on the health of families and communities by promoting healthy lifestyles; conducting research and/or providing education for disease and injury prevention; and/or projects that are humanitarian or service in nature that improve health of individuals or communities.

Funding

The maximum award has been capped at $7,000 for the highest scoring grants to ensure that funding is distributed widely among the applicants. Since 2006, FMPC Grant Awards have generally ranged between $2,500 and $7,000 per award.

Each application is evaluated by four reviewers (at least one is a Family Physician). The amount of each award is then based upon the reviewers’ average score and the recommendation of the FMPC Steering Committee.

Grant awards will be paid in full following the recipient’s completion of the FMPC Grant Award Agreement. Most recipients quickly complete the agreement and receive their payment within a month of the notice of award.
