Development Fund
The fund provides financial support for SDBP programs such as
  • SDBP General Development Fund and New Initiatives
    As the field of developmental and behavioral pediatrics matures, new initiatives and opportunities continuously arise. The Society created a new strategic plan for 2012-2017 with several new initiatives outlined including an increased multidisciplinary training role, increased participation in initiation of policy statements and expanding our role in the creation of and dissemination of entrusted physician activities for certification and training. Support directed to this fund will be used to support new initiatives initiated by the Board with membership support.
  • SDBP Research Grant Award
    The SDBP Research Grant Award consists of a one-year grant of up to $5000 to promote research in developmental and behavioral pediatrics by a young investigator in the field. This has been a goal of the Society for several years, and was finally instituted in 2005. Society resources at present have been able to fund only one award annually; with additional support, SDBP will be able to continue and expand this valuable program which provides support for future leaders in developmental-behavioral pediatrics early in their careers. Support directed to this fund will go directly to support the award.
  • International and Underdeveloped Countries Scholarships and Diversity Fund
    Developmental and behavioral pediatrics health professionals from other countries benefit from the variety of educational formats that take place at the SDBP Annual Meeting; in addition within the US and Canada there is a need to expand our society into communities and cultures which are underrepresented. However, the costs of travel and registration for residents of some countries pose a significant burden and prevent participation in this conference as do issues of expense to the individual. Availability of these scholarships will encourage the exchange of new scientific and clinical information and support the interchange of opinions regarding care and management issues relevant to developmental and behavioral pediatrics among members from a wide variety of countries and diverse communities. Support directed to this fund will be awarded on an annual basis to any qualified member applicant who applies to the Society to travel to an annual meeting.
  • SDBP Endowment Fund
    The annual operating budget is tightly planned and managed to predict for variations in membership, meeting attendance and unexpected costs. The Endowment Fund would be a protected fund that would be invested and reinvested annually to build up a solid base from which the Society could function in times of fiscal challenge. Support directed to this fund would only be used by decision of the Executive Board in a fiscal emergency.
  • Help Fund a Fellow to Attend the Research Scholars Symposium at the annual meeting
    Although all DBP fellows and psychology trainees must engage in scholarly activities during their advanced training, most trainees often have limited opportunities to present their work in progress and gain feedback in a national multidisciplinary forum outside of their institution. Early participation and attendance at SDBP meetings (where they have opportunities to interact with other trainees and faculty and develop leadership skills) is likely to promote heightened engagement in national DBP activities and the development of future leaders in the field. Your tax deductible donation will help support a new Fellows Symposium. Our goal is to raise $10,000 in member donations towards this symposium. Help make a difference in our future - donate today!
