PES has recently organized a Development Committee to raise funds for supporting the work of the organization, prompted by a climate of declining reimbursements and limitations on future Pharma contributions. Why should you get involved? Perhaps one might answer with another question! What has your career as a pediatric endocrinologist meant to you? Pediatric endocrinologists take great satisfaction, both intellectual and emotional, in the acquisition of expertise in our rapidly changing field, and in using it to help the children we see every day in clinic. The PES plays a number of important roles in this process through its multiple educational, scientific, and advocacy activities. The Society will be launching later this year both a campaign for annual membership contributions as well as a major gifts campaign for our more senior members with opportunities to make bequests or major gifts of appreciated stock or cash to our Legacy Fund which is dedicated to supporting future training grants for Clinical Scholars and Research Fellowships. Won’t you please take just a moment to consider your personal legacy as a significant influence in the life of the children you have cared for, by including PES in your estate planning, and making an Annual Contribution to help the work of the Society? Watch for announcements on the annual planned giving opportunities and begin thinking now about how you will participate!
There are many ways you can support our mission to promote research and education to help find treatments for painful childhood diseases and disorders. You can use these tools and resources to explore your giving options, many of which offer tax benefits for you. Feel free to contact us
if you have any questions.
