Why your SVS Foundation gift matters

Your gift to the Society for Vascular Surgery Foundation supports one thing – vascular health. 

With millions of Americans and many more around the world suffering from debilitating or life-threatening vascular disease, there is only one entity devoted to making a difference in the areas of vascular health, community education and research – and that is the SVS Foundation. 

Giving is easy. You can donate online by credit card or create an invoice for check payment by mail. Set up a recurring donation plan to provide timely contributions at your convenience. SVS members also can donate via their annual dues payment. We gladly accept donations of stock. We work with those who prefer to donate through planned giving or Donor Advised Funds. And shopping through Amazon Smile is a painless way to donate. 

We also honor donors of large gifts via our distinctive Legacy Program and its companion, the Presidents Council.
