ASE Members Break Donation Records Again on Giving Tuesday

giving-tuesday-thank-youThank you to the 88 donors who supported the ASE Foundation on Giving Tuesday by donating a total of $20,320 in 24 hours yesterday. With this milestone in giving, we doubled our original goal of raising $10,000 in just one day! You can feel confident that your gifts will have a direct impact on the future of cardiovascular ultrasound because 100% of all donations will be used to support the Foundation’s 2017 initiatives. ASEF sends a special thank you to the ASE leaders, Drs. Banchs, Kaul, Klein, Rigolin, Wiegers, and Weissman who made early pledges to match the first $6,500 raised yesterday. Thank you as well to the Chinese American Heart Association (CnAHA) for their generous contribution. Thank you all for making this our best Giving Tuesday ever!

Did you miss Giving Tuesday yesterday? There’s still time to support the Foundation’s 2016 Annual Appeal before December 31 and help us reach our yearly goal of $250,000. We are at 75% of our goal now! Visit ASEFoundation.org/Donate or contact the Foundation at foundation@asecho.org.

ASEF at 99% of Their Annual Appeal Goal

Thank you to all the donors who have contributed to the ASE Foundation’s 2015 Annual Appeal and helped to raise 99% of our $225,000 goal so far. As you consider your year-end charitable giving, please consider donating to the ASEF.

Merri Bremer, EdD, RN, RDCS, ACS, FASE, shared why it is important to her to support the Foundation as a monthly sustaining donor. “Early in my career, my mentor suggested joining ASE to provide an avenue for education and professional development. Subsequently, ASE has played a huge part in my career, as I have had the opportunity to participate on committees, the Board of Directors, and the Scientific Sessions.  Therefore, I feel committed to “paying it forward” by helping ASEF provide funds for education, humanitarian missions, and research.  What a great opportunity to facilitate quality patient care and support our profession!”

Contact the Foundation to learn more about being a sustaining donor.
