Giving Tuesday - Give a Gift to Impact the Future of Trauma Research
Tuesday, November 5, 2019
Mark your calendars! On December 3, EAST will be participating in a global day of generosity, Giving Tuesday. Celebrated the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, Giving Tuesday kicks off the charitable season. It's a day when you can make a big impact on the future of trauma research.
Last Giving Tuesday, EAST donors helped raise over $30,000. This year our goal is to raise $40,000 to support the EAST Trauma Research Scholarship, which supports the research of surgeon scientists whose work is critical to advancing the science of caring for the injured patient in an environment of scarce funding opportunities.
You can help EAST continue to support the work of deserving investigators on Giving Tuesday by donating anytime now through December 3, 2019. In lieu of that coffee today, consider a $5 donation or consider a long-term investment by opting in for recurring donations.
Donating is easier than ever! Text EAST to 312-668-0301 or donate online below.
If you prefer to mail in your donation, please download and complete a Donation Form and send your donation with a personal check or credit card information to the address noted on the form.
Thank you you for giving back this Giving Tuesday and best wishes for the holiday season.
