Honor a Mentor Program

The Honor a Mentor Program is a wonderful way to personally acknowledge your mentor’s contribution to you and the College. In appreciation of this special relationship, the ACVS Foundation offers you the opportunity to say “thank you” to the ACVS Diplomate who has helped pave the way for your success.

When a mentor is honored, the ACVS Foundation informs the mentor of the tribute and presents them with a certificate. Further recognition includes an Honored Mentor page on the ACVS website that includes pictures and quotations that reflect on their impact and accomplishments as a mentor. Honored mentors are also acknowledged in the ACVS Surgery Summit program.

The minimum donation is only $100. When cumulative donations for an individual mentor reach $1,000 or more, the mentor is honored. All funds raised for the Honor a Mentor program go to the ACVS Foundation’s general fund to support its mission to improve the surgical care and treatment of all animals through education and research.

Even if your mentor has already been honored, you may still donate. Your mentor will be informed of this new donation and your name will be added to the donor list on the mentor’s webpage.

Initiate Honoring a Mentor

To initiate honoring a mentor, the minimum donation is only $100. Mentors with cumulative donations less than $1,000 are listed on the website and additional donations are encouraged. You may nominate a mentor and then find others to help honor your mentor.

A strategy that has been very successful in having a mentor fully honored at $1,000 or more is for one person to lead the effort by reaching out to others who have been mentored by the potential honoree. The group leader can encourage potential mentee donors to participate and either collect the forms and donations themselves or direct the additional mentees to the Honor a Mentor webpage. In so doing, the $1,000 benchmark will be reached quickly.
