The AMTA Chapters have done an outstanding job this year supporting the Massage Therapy Foundation (MTF) in terms of special event fund raising and Dollar(s)-Per-Member contributions. To-date, Chapters have contributed $73,393 to the Foundation! We would like to thank all Chapters who have contributed and encourage the Chapters who have not yet participated to consider a gift before the end of the year.
With Chapter support, MTF funds important research grants, publishes the profession's only free scientific journal, helps practitioners incorporate research into education and practice, and partners with community organizations to bring the gift of massage to individuals who would otherwise have no access to this powerful gift.
