Our Dream Grantor Program
Our practice provides charitable financial support for worthy causes.
One of the ways we give back is through donations to worthy causes through our Dream Grantor Program. This program is designed to offer charitable assistance for needs in our community. It DOES NOT provide any assistance for plastic surgery procedures.
A few examples of Dream Grantor Program requests:
- Flying home a service member to see their family
- Giving a less fortunate family a fun filled day at a local sporting event
- Assisting with the payment of medical costs of a terminal illness
- See More Stories of People We’ve Helped
Any charitable cause is eligible and we are open to hearing very deserving and unique ideas. We accept one submission per quarter per phone number. Applications are reviewed on a quarterly basis and selections are made within our program guidelines.
Have someone you would like to nominate? Fill out our online form.
Please note that due to the abundance of submissions we receive on a quarterly basis, we are only able to reach out and respond to those who have been selected.
Our Surgical Missions
We believe plastic surgeons can make positive change at home and abroad.
Dr. Kaufman spent a year as the Jerome Webster Fellow for Interplast, a non-profit dedicated to helping those across the globe who do not have access to plastic surgery. This experience was invaluable to his experience as a surgeon, and each year, Dr. Kaufman volunteers two weeks of his time to improve the lives of children and adults through plastic surgery.
Dr. Kaufman has also volunteered with Hospital de la Familia, a medical center funded by a Portola Valley group dedicated to improving developing areas of Central America. This unique model is a center for continued care in many disciplines, with continuity of care provided by local physicians in training.
We encourage you to view our online photo gallery. In the gallery you will see just a few of the many people Dr. Kaufman has been honored to help through volunteer plastic surgery missions around the world.
