The Challenge launches on December 3, #GivingTuesday, an international day dedicated to giving, and continues through December 31, 2019.

There are three ways to win the 2019 Assembly Challenge:

  • Be the assembly with the most dollars raised in 2019 for the Funds for the Future Campaign;
  • Be the assembly with the highest member participation rate in 2019 for the Funds for the Future Campaign;
  • Be the assembly with most first-time donors December 3-December 31, 2019

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 2020 and will be recognized throughout ATS communication channels and at ATS 2020.

The Foundation created this toolkit to help members make the Assembly Challenge a success for their assembly. Assemblies are encouraged to make #GivingTuesday (Tuesday, December 3) a focal point of their assembly activities. Then, continue the spirit of giving throughout the end of the year.
