The AVA Foundation is dedicated to saving lives through risk-free vascular access. We promote evidence-based clinical practice. We serve clinicians interested in vascular access, students of the healthcare professions, and vascular access patients and their families.

We are a not-for-profit, 501 (c)(3) educational and research organization.


The AVA Foundation provides grants for primary research in order to collect the data and evidence for best-practices in vascular access care. By developing evidence-based protocols, we can effectively improve patient outcomes.


We provide funds to healthcare practitioners for higher education in vascular access, so they may deliver the highest level of vascular access care. Travel Award scholarships are available to clinicians attending the AVA Annual Scientific Meeting, to promote hands-on involvement and education. We also fund educational projects that promote quality vascular access care to patients.

Community Outreach

The AVA Foundation strives to promote patient education by funding support for educational videos and consumer literature along with consumer-oriented PR and editorial articles. Family and patient education can help ensure that recipients of vascular access card understand how to participate in their healthcare.
