ABM Offers Different Ways For You To Make A Difference

ABM Growth Fund

The ABM is committed to adhering to the International Code of Marketing of Breast-Milk Substitutes and will not accept funding from companies that do not adhere to the Code. Remaining unbiased and free from influence is essential to the core values of ABM.  Your donation to the ABM Growth Fund will help us broaden our efforts to educate and empower health professionals around the globe.

The Maurice Rosefelt Scholarship Fund

The Maurice Rosefelt Scholarship Fund is an endowed scholarship fund. The fund provides financial assistance each year to selected ABM members who would like to present scholarly work at the ABM annual meeting, but otherwise would be unable to afford such participation. It is named after the son of Anne Eglash, MD, a founding member of ABM, and Mitchell Rosefelt, who passed away on July 10, 2004, at the age of 11, after a 19 month battle with brain cancer. Donations are fully tax-deductible in the USA. 

The Founders Endowment

Established by the Founders of ABM, the Founders Endowment will provide funds for educational projects and special speakers, such as the Annual Founders' Lecture. With continued involvement of the original founders, the fund can support new opportunities and initiatives in the field of breastfeeding medicine. The Founders Endowment is now managed by the Madison Community Foundation. For more information, please visit:

International Meeting Participant Travel Support

In order to build a truly inclusive, global community, it is essential that ABM members from around the world have an opportunity to attend meetings and conferences. Recognizing the high cost of travel and the economic challenges some members face, we are proud to offer a donation option that is specifically designated for travel expenses for international members. Show your support for ABM by helping members from around the world share their experiences and perspectives at ABM events. 

General Fund Donation

Donations to the general fund will be used as unrestricted funds to further the mission, vision, and values of ABM. Funds will support projects and programs like ABM Protocols, parent handouts, educational podcasts and webinars, and support additional educational programs that have been identified as a need of those working in the field of breastfeeding medicine.
