The Foundation supports the research awards and other activities related to the Central Surgical Association. The Foundation is serving an ever more important role in our Association by supporting scholarship and surgical research through its awards program. The Foundation would like to increase the amounts of these awards and support our new and younger members in the Association. Investing in our younger members is important because they will be the future of our Association. You can do this by making a donation to our unrestricted general Foundation Fund or the unrestricted Nonie Lowry Fund.
The Nonie Lowry Fund was established to honor past CSA Executive Director, Nonie Lowry. The purpose of this fund is to support programs consistent with the mission of the Foundation and for functions that would please Nonie. Examples might be prize money for best paper awards, support of scholarships or lectureships as they become options in the future, dinner dance expenses, etc. Those who donate will be gratefully acknowledged on the CSA website.
CSA members may make a secure online donation via credit card (Visa, MasterCard, or American Express) by logging into the Members Only Area. CSA members and non-members may also complete the Contribution Form to donate by credit card or check. It is our hope that donations to the CSA Foundation will allow the CSA to continue as a vibrant society serving surgeons within the region and beyond.
Thank you for your consideration.
