The SVS Foundation has expanded its mission to include not only support of basic and clinical science research grants but also programs that address patient education and disease prevention.
SVS has created a new staff position, SVS Foundation Development Manager, to provide support in fundraising to further the new work.
Sally Benson, a Certified Fundraising Executive, joined the SVS staff in Chicago earlier this month to take on this important job; she will handle donor relations, grants, marketing and communications, individual giving and planned giving for the SVS Foundation. She earlier worked for the American College of Surgeons and at American Health Information Management Association. She may be reached at 312-334-2339 or at SBenson@vascularsociety.org.
