The primary mission of the Foundation shall be to support those activities which seek to enrich the medical education of
ophthalmology residents, fellows and attending physicians alike. The Foundation was created and sustained from the efforts of those attending Ophthalmologists who dedicated their time and energy to supporting the Ophthalmology teaching program at the Manhattan Eye, Ear, & Throat Hospital. The primary Foundation goal will be to provide support for educational activities in all the subspecialty fields of Ophthalmology which are conducted within the Manhattan Eye, Ear & Throat Hospital while this is applicable. The Foundation will consider applications for funding grants, educational stipends, and purchasing specialty equipment that is within the scope of the Foundation's activities.
