ASRT Foundation Marks Milestone

Mar 05, 2015
The ASRT Foundation’s 30th anniversary celebration campaign reached a major milestone in February with more than $1 million in commitments from individuals and organizations. The funds raised for this multimillion-dollar campaign will be used to ensure the future of scholarships, grants and other programs for radiologic technology educators, students and clinical personnel.

Launched in June 2014, the Positioning for a Brighter Tomorrow campaign provides the Foundation with long-term financial stability in its efforts to empower radiologic technologists and strengthen the radiologic technology profession. In addition, the campaign works to improve collaboration with industry partners to increase the quality and safety of patient care around the world for years to come.

ASRT Foundation Director Phelosha Collaros said, “We’re very excited about the progress we’ve made, and surpassing $1 million in commitments is truly a major milestone early in the campaign as it gives us great momentum to achieve our ultimate goals.”

The Foundation invites individuals and corporations to make transformational gifts that will help R.T.s advance through scholarship, research and community outreach programs. In addition, donations will enhance collaborative initiatives to improve R.T. education and patient care.

As part of the campaign, the Foundation is offering individuals and corporations the opportunity to have their names included on the ASRT Foundation Donor Wall, which will be located near the entrance of the ASRT Museum and Archives. In addition, campaign supporters have the option to purchase naming rights to facilities and meeting spaces at the ASRT office in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and to create new scholarship endowments and grant awards for research for international outreach.

Those wishing to participate in the campaign can donate cash, leave a deferred gift through a will or trust, provide a combined gift, or make a contribution with stock, mutual funds or marketable securities.
