Investing in the science, innovation, and future leaders of emergency medicine

SAEM Foundation (SAEMF) is the largest private foundation for research and research training in emergency medicine. Established in 2008, our net assets are over $12 million. This is why we are able to boldly invest nearly $1 million in the best and brightest academic emergency medicine researchers and educators each year. Our grants, fully supported through generous donors, have a career-defining impact on aspiring researchers by funding their work at a critical stage that prepares them to compete funding.

A donation to SAEMF is a truly transformational investment in emergency care:

  • Each $1 donated leads to $3 in subsequent funding from federal and other sources.
  • One hundred percent of annual fund gifts received are directed to clinical, translational, and education research with a singular mission focus and an efficient operation and network supported by SAEM.
  • Together, SAEM and SAEMF have awarded nearly $13.5 million in grants to more than 570 academicians.
