The Foundation is the philanthropic arm of the American College of Chest Physicians. The Foundation has a mission of championing lung health through support of clinical research, patient education, and community service. The Foundationís Community Service grant program awards grants to healthcare professionals in nonprofit and nongovernmental organizations who donate their time and medical expertise to community-based projects that demonstrate a clear positive impact on the lung health of that community and have the potential for long-term sustainability and reproducibility. Projects may focus on K-12 student education, patient/caregiver education, community health education/awareness, health care worker education, and clinic/medical center training/education. Eligible applicants must be currently providing a voluntary service to a nonprofit or nongovernmental organization. Membership in CHEST is preferred but not required.
