AMERICAN PHILANTHROPIC VENTURES ASSOCIATION was created to create an opportunity for philanthropic financial resources to make a more direct impact by funding exciting groundbreaking medical and environmental technologies.

APVA is endeavoring to bridge this funding gap through showcasing the enterprises at regular meetings at convenient locations for our philanthropists.

Our mission is to inspire the traditional philanthropic community to redirect a modest portion of charitable giving to these worthy enterprises to insure that life-altering technologies become commercially developed and available to those in need, whether in a major medical center or in a remote area of the world.

Medical technology innovation is saving more lives each and every year and helps lower the overall cost of health care. Environmental technologies are doing more to save our precious and sensitive environmental ecosystems and will one day reverse the effect of the stressful demands of mankind on our planet.

Medical technologies companies create life changing innovation. These advance medical devices and diagnostics allow people to live longer, healthier and more productive lives.

In fact, over the past 30 years, medical advancements helped add five years to U.S. life expectancy and reduces fatalities from heart disease, stroke and breast cancer by more than half.

Medical Technology improves the efficiency of health care systems through earlier disease detection and more effective treatments that reduce the economic burden of disease and the cost of care.

It drives economic growth by creating high-paying manufacturing jobs in the U.S. and through net exports to other countries around the world.
