“There has never been a greater need for those who can clearly explain, through visuals, the complexities of high-tech medicine. The support received from the Friends of the Trust allows us – as the vanguard of these efforts — to better achieve our mission and goals.” Bill Andrews, Founding President of the Vesalius Trust
The Vesalius Trust meets its goals by financially supporting multiple research and educational projects each year. These range from graduate student theses to programs by professionals in the field; many of which have resulted in long-term benefits to biomedical communication and, in turn, to medical and patient education.
This support would be impossible without The Friends of the Trust, who are dedicated to investing in the future of the Vesalius Trust. They firmly and passionately believe in the Trust’s mission to support education and research in visual communications for the health sciences. Each Friend of the Trust is committed to the sustainability of the Trust, generously supporting the Foundation in a meaningful way, encouraging and inspiring others to give as well.
Founding Secretary Marcia Hartsock said of the Friends:
“This is a very good way to return to my profession some of the benefits I have received from it.”
Friends of the Trust pledge $5,000 in support over a five-year period, to provide a solid foundation for future Trust activities and stewardship.
A Friend may pledge cash or appreciated equities. Fulfillment of the pledge may be in a one-time payment, or via annual or semiannual installments. Contributions to the Trust, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, may be fully deductible under current tax laws and can potentially reduce your personal or family taxes. We welcome questions, comments and suggestions, and would be happy to provide potential Friends with financial statements or other information.
