ATA’s mission is to improve the delivery of healthcare around the world through the deployment and use of telemedicine technologies. To further this objective, ATA actively partners with foreign-based telehealth groups to build a global telemedicine alliance with shared learning resources, networking opportunities and joint projects.
More information on how to join ATA's Global Partner program is available here.
ATA has established a special fund through which individuals and organizations can donate funds to international telemedicine charities. The Fund will support international telemedicine activities, projects and organizations that have been approved for support by the Fund’s Steering Committee, and whose mission is consistent with the tax-exempt purposes of ATA. Currently, there are 3 organizations that have been approved to receive donations:
The list is subject to change at the discretion of the Steering Committee, as set forth in the Fund Charter. The approval process for accepting new organizations as beneficiaries of the Fund is being established.
All donations shall be directed to projects, activities or organizations through written grant agreements that specify the terms and conditions under which the funds may be spent, and establish the legal restrictions and limitations of the use of the grant funds.
Contributions to the Fund will be accepted from ATA members, corporations, foundations, private individuals, and other organizations desiring to support the Fund. Donors may request donations be directed to specific projects or organizations that are on the list of approved organizations. In such cases, the donor’s request will be honored, unless the Steering Committee determines said request is imprudent, infeasible or illegal. At the donor’s option, a rejected request may be returned to the donor or applied to another suitable, approved project.Donor’s wishing to make contributions to the Fund should contact Katie Banks, ATA’s Director of Finance and Administration, at 202-223-3333.
