November 28th is Giving Tuesday - Please remember the SVS Foundation

GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many people focus on holiday and year-end giving. The global day of giving was founded in 2012 and is celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, on the heels of the Black Friday and Cyber Monday shopping days.

This year, the expanded mission of the SVS Foundation provides even more reasons to give generously this holiday season. In addition to the core commitment to funding basic and clinical research, the Foundation has widened its reach to add an emphasis on members in community practice, prevention and patient education and, ultimately, the public’s vascular health.

A New Mission – Continued Support for Vascular Research Awards and Activities

The SVS Foundation has been dedicated for many years to supporting young surgeon scientists through research awards and scholarships. This past year, the Foundation Board of Directors broadened our mission to address the vascular health and wellness of our patients which is consistent with what vascular surgeons do every day to optimize the delivery of high-quality patient care.

The SVS Foundation’s new mission is: To optimize the vascular health and well-being of patients and the public through support of research that leads to discovery of knowledge and innovative strategies, as well as education and programs, to prevent and treat circulatory disease. 

Dr. Ron Fairman, Chairman of the SVS Foundation Board stated, “The Foundation’s efforts and commitment are aligned with our broadened mission - Vascular surgeons will lead in the discovery and delivery of the highest quality and most accessible healthcare to reduce the complications of circulatory disease.

To support these programs, the Foundation will seek funding from private and corporate foundations and other entities.
