ASRT Foundation Reaches $2.5 Million Dollar in 30-Year Anniversary Campaign

Funds raised from Positioning for a Brighter Tomorrow campaign will go toward education and training, collaborative efforts with other organizations

February 8, 2016 — The ASRT Foundation’s 30th anniversary celebration campaign reached a major milestone in January with more than $2.5 million raised in commitments from individuals and organizations. The funds donated for this campaign will be used to ensure medical imaging and radiation therapy professionals attain the level of education, leadership and influence required to meet the needs of patients for many years to come.

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. The campaign will continue through June 2016.

The Foundation invites individuals and corporations to make transformational gifts that will help medical imaging and radiation therapy professionals and students advance through scholarships, research grants and community outreach programs. In addition, donations will enhance collaborative initiatives to improve radiologic technologist 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 adjacent to the ASRT Museum and Archives at ASRT's national office in Albuquerque, N.M. In addition, campaign supporters have the option to purchase naming rights to facilities and meeting spaces at the ASRT office, and to create new, personalized program awards with their gift to the campaign.

Those wishing to participate 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.
