19 Total funds raised 1947-51: $5,670,869; total medical research funds 1947-51: $4,626,298. The difference of $1,044,571 represents allocations for research fellowships. 20 This amount allocated to medical research by the American Heart Association and its affiliates.

25 Figures for 1951 are fiscal year figures, while figures for 1952 are calendar year figures. 26 Initial national campaign not sufficiently concluded to provide figures.

NOTE. Many of the organizations listed on this chart use the major part of their
total funds raised each year for patient care, clinics, medical education, social research,
special appliances, rehabilitation, etc.

In columns where a total figure is given with a national office figure in (1) below it
it means that the national office retained only that much of the total figure and appor.
tioned the remainder out amongst its field offices, or designated part of the remainder
to research.

The figures given on this chart are for the year designated; they are not accumulative
from year to year. In all cases, the medical research funds are part of the total funds,
i. e., the total funds are inclusive of medical research funds.

The American Diabetes Association, 11 West 42d St., New York, N. Y., carries on
no public campaign for contributions and does not consider itself a voluntary health
It is therefore not included in this chart. In 1948 their total funds were $91,366,
of which $300 went to medical research; in 1949, total funds $77,204 with no medical re-
search funds; in 1950, total funds were $42,249 with $1,953 going to medical research; and
in 1951, total funds were $101,469 with $2,043 going to medical research.
