The SSAT Foundation is the philanthropic arm of the Society for Surgery of the Alimentary Tract. The Foundation was established in 2000 to help the Society achieve its ongoing mission to advance the science and practice of surgery in the treatment of digestive disease. Research and education remain the cornerstone of fulfilling that mission, and the Foundation seeks to support the SSAT's current initiatives: the Career Development Award for young faculty members (through donations to the unrestricted General Fund); the Layton F. Rikkers Master Clinician Award; and the Andrew L. Warshaw Master Educator Award.
