Our internal team is made up of a diverse group of professionals with a wide range of expertise in nonprofit management, fund development, program development and evaluation, financial management, technology solutions, communications strategies, and more. Together, we aim to provide responsive programs and services of the highest quality to the spondylitis community.
SAA receives no government funding and relies on the
generous donations from individuals to create and maintain the programs and
services aimed at improving the futures of the 2.7 million Americans affected
by spondylitis and its family of related diseases.
