AAMC President's Emergency Fund Grants
Emergency grants were instituted in November 2005 to support curators affected by Hurricane Katrina; eight grants were disbursed. In February 2006, the AAMC received $10,000 from the Samuel H. Kress Foundation along with several small member donations to expand the effort. Emergency grants are made to curators, both members and non-members, who find themselves in financial need through extraordinary circumstances. Grants are given at the president's and board's discretion and do not involve an application process.
