A member may donate in two ways to the NJ Podiatric Medical Society (NJPMS) and several ways to the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA).
1. Donations to the Jonathan Robertozzi Memorial Scholarship Foundation are gladly accepted and used for yearly scholarships in the amount of $1,500.00 each to worthy individuals. At Newton High School, Newton, New Jersey, where Jonathan would have attended, one $1,500.00 scholarship is presented each year to a graduating senior selected by the school guidance committee.
Additionally, two $1,500.00 scholarships are awarded to both Temple University School of Podiatric Medicine and the New York College of Podiatric Medicine annually. Each school selects a worthy junior year student. Our annual golf tournament provides the majority of funding for these yearly scholarships.
2. The NJPMS Political Action Committee will accept checks written on personal bank accounts for use by the NJPMS Legislative Committee, political consultant and the Executive Director for donations to various New Jersey political campaigns in support of podiatric issues and professional health standards.
3. A third donation possibility is to contribute directly to the American Podiatric Medical Association’s Political Action Committee (PAC). These donations can be made and forwarded directly to the APMA at 9312 Old Georgetown Road, Bethesda, MD 20814. Checks should be written on personal accounts, not business accounts to either possibility as listed below.
a. Educational Foundation – This fund is used for political education materials and events to enlighten APMA members, staff and the public about timely podiatric issues.b. (PAC) Political Action Committee – This fund contributes directly to candidates who support podiatric issues on a national basis in their election and re-election bids.
