Advancing Science—and Patient Care

Give today!

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

You play a vital role in advancing respiratory science—and patient care.

Thank you for investing in promising young researchers and helping them get started when start up is difficult. Because that’s what you do when you support the ATS Foundation and our Funds for the Future Annual Campaign.

Will you make a tax-deductible gift in support of young investigators today?

Your gift today will help raise $850,000 for young investigator research grants before year’s end.

I know how important these grants can be. I received a $12,000 grant during the fourth year of my fellowship. Without it, I wouldn’t have had my last year of training and probably wouldn’t have had an academic career.

Early-career research grants change lives.

Since the ATS Foundation Research Program began, we’ve awarded $16 million to 210 investigators who have gone on to secure $215 million in federal funding.

That’s a remarkable return on investment—and an investment in a future where we conquer lung disease. I hope you’ll consider making a gift today.

Your gift today is a sure way to demonstrate your dedication to the future of our profession… and to building a future where patients can breathe better.
