Educational Endowment Fund

The New England Ophthalmological Society Educational Trust Fund was established in December, 1992, and was renamed the Educational Endowment Fund in November, 2004. The Fund’s dual purpose is to ensure the continuing education of New England ophthalmologists and to promote public awareness of ophthalmology. The Educational Endowment Fund is supported by members of the Society, exhibitors and the public.

Please consider contributing to the Fund whenever you wish to honor friends, family members, colleagues or teachers, past and present.

If you are not a NEOS member but would like to contribute, please contact us at For members to contribute, click here. Your donation is tax-deductible, and it is much appreciated.
