SUPPORT THE ACS—SAVE LIVES
Becoming a philanthropic partner of the ACS is one of the
best ways to make a lasting mark on the profession.
The ACS Foundation is the philanthropic arm of the College, and its purpose is to
secure the resources to advance the priorities of the College and its mission of ensuring
the best patient care. It is because of your generosity that the ACS is able to provide
funding for 50 annual scholarship and research fellowship awards, patient education
outreach, support for Operation Giving Back, advocacy for the profession, and more.
You can donate to the Sustaining Fund, which supports the area of greatest need or
emerging opportunity, or you can designate your gift to a number of the College’s
programs such as Scholarships, Trauma, Cancer, and Operation Giving Back—
all helping to save more lives.
THE FELLOWS LEADERSHIP SOCIETY
Join a philanthropic community of generous supporters
who invest in optimal patient care.
The major gift society of the ACS Foundation, the Fellows Leadership Society,
offers increased donor recognition, an invitation to an annual luncheon, and use
of the hospitality center during Clinical Congress. The entry level is $1,000 per year;
a commitment of $10,000 or more will provide even more benefits and can be
contributed in multiyear installments.
Gifts of appreciated stock can offer significant tax savings.
