ASRT Foundation Marks Major Milestone

Oct 08, 2015

The ASRT Foundation’s 30th anniversary celebration campaign reached a major milestone in September with more than $2 million in commitments from individuals and organizations. The funds raised for this multimillion-dollar campaign will be used to ensure the future of scholarships, research grants and community outreach programs for radiologic technology educators, students and clinical personnel.

Launched in June 2014, the Positioning for a Brighter Tomorrow campaign provides the Foundation — the philanthropic arm of the American Society of Radiologic Technologists — 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, “Surpassing $2 million in commitments to the campaign is an exciting and inspiring milestone ​that will help give us the momentum needed 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 is located near the entrance of the ASRT Museum and Archives at ASRT's national office in Albuquerque, New Mexico. In addition, campaign supporters have the option to purchase naming rights to facilities and meeting spaces at the ASRT office and to create new scholarship endowments and grant awards for research or international outreach.

Those wishing to participate in the campaign may 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.
