Campaign for EAST
Over $1,050,000 raised so far!
It has been an exciting time for the EAST Foundation with the launch a $1 Million Campaign for EAST so we can continue to move forward in our support of EAST’s mission and initiatives. With the launch of the Capital Campaign for EAST “Defining the Future of Trauma”, we celebrate 25 years of EAST’s service and raise over $1 million from members and corporate constituents over a five year pledge period.
What is the EAST Foundation Capital Campaign for EAST?
The 2011 Capital Campaign for EAST is an historic initiative of the EAST Foundation centered on EAST’s 25th anniversary. EAST members are asked to make 5-year pledges to the Foundation and those donations will be focused on education and research. In addition, we hope to secure significant contributions from a variety of corporate partners. Over $1 Million Dollars in pledges for the five year campaign has been secured!
How will member contributions be used?
Funds contributed will be used 100% for building a corpus to support trauma and research scholarships, as well as specific educational programming for EAST members. Member funds will not be used to support operations or overhead, but rather member contributions will flow directly into member initiatives.
What is the Purpose of Corporate Partnerships?
Relationships are being formed with corporate constituents at unprecedented levels. These partners have been energized by our vision for the future, and are making significant investments in the development of our resources. You, the members of EAST, will be the largest benefactor of these relationships.
How can I participate?
Members can support the Campaign by making a 5-year pledge to support EAST member initiatives. This can be done on the Foundation website by downloading the Campaign Contribution Form. As the Foundation is a 501(c) 3 organization, all financial support is fully tax-deductible.

Progress so far?
The 2011 Campaign has raised over $1,000,000 from both members and corporate. Highlights include an historic member commitment, and four pace-setting corporate commitments.
