Presidents Council

Contribution level $50,000-$100,000

The Presidents Council of the SVS Foundation was established in 2016 by its founding donor, Peter Lawrence, MD, Foundation Chair.  As the immediate past president of the SVS, Dr. Lawrence wanted to demonstrate his appreciation for the unique opportunity afforded to him by the SVS during his tenure as president by making a major contribution to the Foundation’s endowment fund. 

He continues to encourage other past presidents to join him in the Presidents Council to provide financial support for research that will advance the specialty and support basic science, clinical, and technological investigations.  This research is the key to maintaining vascular surgery’s leadership role in the field of vascular disease management.
