Sharon Rounds, MD: A Portrait of Giving
For many, the idea of making a planned gift can be intimidating.
Sharon Rounds, MD, discovered there were simple ways she could support the next generation of researchers, clinicians, and educators:
“When I was very young, my husband and I invested a few hundred dollars in an annuity fund then promptly forgot about it. Many years later, we were pleasantly surprised to learn that the fund had grown significantly in value. We had no plans to continue the investment, so we decided to make the American Thoracic Society Foundation the beneficiary of the fund. The fund sits there, quietly accumulating value, and will benefit the ATS Foundation Research Program and (eventually) benefit patients with lung diseases.”
The ATS Foundation, Inc. is 501(c)(3) charitable organization.
