Chapter Initiative Fund

What is the ACS North Carolina Chapter Initiative Fund?

The North Carolina Chapter of the American College of Surgeons (NC-ACS) has partnered with the American College of Surgeons Foundation to set up a special fund, the ACS North Carolina Chapter Initiative Fund and all gifts to that fund will be held for use by NC-ACS.

NC-ACS may use the funds to cover the costs of any initiative that advances the mission of the American College of Surgeons.  ACS Fellows in North Carolina who contribute to the ACS Foundation now have an opportunity to direct their gifts to North Carolina surgeons and initiatives.

All gifts to the American College of Surgeons South Carolina Chapter Initiative Fund will be held by the American College of Surgeons Foundation (ACS Foundation) as restricted gifts for the benefit of the North Carolina Chapter of the ACS.

Anyone may donate to the ACS North Carolina Chapter Initiative Fund. In addition, many employers offer a matching program for employees making charitable donations.

The American College of Surgeons Foundation is a 501C-3 nonprofit as established by the IRS.  This tax status means that donations towards the North Carolina Chapter Initiative Fund are considered charitable contributions and are thus tax deductible.
