The Dermatology PA Foundation (DPAF) was established in part to help expand the impact of philanthropic activities of dermatology PAs. The SDPA has a long history of charitable and educational activities. In 2012, the SDPA established a philanthropic task force, which transformed into the Philanthropic Committee in 2013 to promote the desire of its members to engage in fund raising and awareness of dermatologic disease treatment and cures.
The success of these SDPA’s charitable activities led the organization’s leaders to establish the DPAF in 2015. Trustees of the DPAF have targeted the following charitable groups as worthy philanthropic projects to provide financial and volunteer support.
- Patient Advocacy Organizations
- Disease Research Organizations
