Dr. Trudeau was a forward-thinking physician whose vision spurred the founding of the ATS, as well as its growth as a world-renowned leader in lung research and education over the last hundred-plus years.

To recognize his distinguished achievements and honor those who share his vision, the ATS Foundation has established the Edward Livingston Trudeau Society to honor individuals who have made a legacy gift. 

Members of the Edward Livingston Trudeau Society receive:

  • A Trudeau Society contributor ribbon to be worn on their name tags during the ATS International Conference;
  • Special recognition on the Honor Roll of Donors; and
  • Invitations to special events.

To become a member, please contact us and let us know that you have made an estate gift to the Foundation. Examples of such gifts are:

  • Designating the Foundation as a charitable beneficiary in a will or trust;
  • Naming the Foundation as owner and/or beneficiary of a life insurance plan;
  • Indicating the Foundation as a beneficiary of a retirement plan account; and
  • Funding a life-income gift with the Foundation as the charitable beneficiary.

If you have included the ATS Foundation in your estate plans complete this form to tell us about the provision you have made so that we can properly thank you and honor you as a member of the Edward Livingston Trudeau Society. All information you provide will remain confidential.
