(A) Increasing knowledge of risk factors and how to minimize those in that are modifiable.
(B) Indicating when screenings for certain cancers should be performed.
(C) Identifying the benefits of early detection.
- The project target audience must be an underserved and/or at-risk population.

2. Prescription Medication Safety Health Education Required Project Criteria:
- Projects must focus specifically on prescription drug safety.
- The project target audience must be youth/young adults between the ages of 2 and 21.

Eligibility:

  • Nonprofits having a 501(c)(3) status with the IRS
  • Others (see text field entitled "Additional Eligibility Criteria" for clarification)

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

The Foundation may also give grants to non-501(c)(3) organizations, but the Foundation retains the burden of proving to the IRS that the activity served a charitable purpose and not an associational, fraternal, social, or other purpose. No such burden exists when the grantee is another 501(c)(3) organization. The mere fact that it is a 501(c)(3) relieves the AMA Foundation of further monitoring obligations.

NOT ELIGIBLE:
- Award dinners and special events
- Capital construction or improvement
- Operating/indirect expenses such as utilities, rent, etc.
- General equipment (laptops, ipads, printers, etc.)
- Salaries (salary expenses to operate the organization in general on a long-term basis)
- Religious organizations for religious purposes
- Political causes, candidates, organizations, or campaigns
- Grants to individuals
- Food/beverages over $1,000
