Our organization is able to continue its mission because of your support and generosity.

We welcome donations of all sizes and payment plans – whether it's a one-time gift, a monthly contribution or part of a matching gifts program.
The Ruth Fox Memorial Endowment Fund was established in 1990, the 35th anniversary of the founding of ASAM, as a living tribute to the Founding President, Ruth Fox, MD. It serves to ensure the organization's mission is fulfilled. To keep up with momentum of our growing society, we rely on our Donors for their contributions.
In 1990 ASAM leadership made a promise to honor the legacy of Ruth Fox by establishing this fund with a goal to raise $10 million. To date, the Endowment has raised $3.6 million.
The endowment builds a sustainable funding source to support the organization's ability to respond to major changes and pursue opportunities to grow and expand while member dues and other revenue sources provide resources to carry out the organization's ongoing body of work.
