Assembly Challenge Toolkit

Welcome to the 2017 ATS Assembly Challenge!

The Assembly Challenge taps into the grassroots community of the ATS assemblies in support of the ATS Foundation Funds for the Future Campaign. Your generosity launches promising young investigators in careers dedicated to scientific discovery and better patient care.

The Challenge launches on November 28, #GivingTuesday, an international day dedicated to giving, and continues through December 31, 2017.

There were three ways to win the 2017 Assembly Challenge:

  • Be the assembly with the most dollars raised in 2017 for the Funds for the Future Campaign;
  • Be the assembly with the highest member participation rate in 2017 for the Funds for the Future Campaign;
  • Be the assembly with most first-time donors November 28-December 31, 2017

Gifts support core ATS mission-related programs including Research Program, MECOR, Medical Education Research, Ziskind Clinical Research Scholar Award, and Assembly Awards and Scholarships. No matter what program inspires you, all gifts to the Foundation count toward the Assembly Challenge.

The winning assemblies will be announced in early January 2018 and will be recognized throughout ATS communications channels and at ATS 2018.

The Foundation created this toolkit to help members make the Assembly Challenge a success for their assembly. Assemblies are encouraged to make #GivingTuesday (Tuesday, November 28) a focal point of their assembly activities. Then, continue the spirit of giving throughout the end of the year.
