Legacy Program

The SVS Foundation's Legacy Program honors those who have given $10,000 or more to the SVS Foundation during their lifetime. They are honored in perpetuity for their commitment to the specialty.

The SVS considers the following contributors to be the specialty's leaders who most understand the critical need for innovative researchers. Their exceptional support has made it possible for the SVS Foundation to award grants to ensure researchers have the resources they need to start and continue their research careers. Equally important, these contributors know that vascular patients are the primary beneficiaries of the high-quality research conducted by vascular surgeons.
