The College of American Pathologists (CAP) Foundation
The CAP Foundation champions patient-centered and humanitarian roles for pathologists. The Foundation strives to connect people, especially those in need, to the specialized, life-saving skills of pathologists.
One of the Foundation’s most significant humanitarian funding efforts, CAP’s See, Test & Treat® program, provides free breast and cervical cancer screenings to women in medically underserved communities throughout the United States. CAP member pathologists, together with a team of health care professionals, volunteer their time and expertise to deliver breast and cervical cancer screenings, diagnoses, and follow-up to care or treatment recommendations in one day and at no cost to the women served.
The CAP Foundation supports notable grants and awards through which significant strides in pathology and patient care emerge. These include the Leadership Development Award, the John H. Rippey Grant for Laboratory Quality Assurance, Translational Diagnostics Advanced Training Awards, and the Scholars Research Program.
Through the generous financial support of CAP members, staff, industry, foundations and patient advocacy groups, the CAP Foundation serves as the leading philanthropic organization for pathologists. Since its inception in 1963, the CAP Foundation has proudly granted millions of dollars to support pathology education, research, and humanitarian programs.
