Starting in 2013, APTA will increase its donation to the Foundation for Physical Therapy to help support the Foundation's mission to fund physical therapy research and develop the next generation of researchers.
During its January conference call, APTA's Board of Directors (Board) voted unanimously to increase the donation noted as "percentage of dues" from 2% to 2.5% indefinitely. In dollars, that increase amounts to about $76,000 annually.
In a letter to the Board, Foundation President Bill Boissonnault, PT, DHSc, said, "The additional funding comes at a critical time for the Foundation, allowing us to continue funding our current initiatives, and at the same time build for the future."
