Honor a Mentor Program

The Honor a Mentor Program is a wonderful way to personally acknowledge your ACVS Diplomate mentor’s contribution to you and the College. The minimum donation is only $100. When cumulative donations for an individual mentor reach $1,000 or more, the ACVS Foundation informs your mentor of the tribute and presents him or her with a certificate. Further recognition includes pictures and quotes of his or her impact and accomplishments as a mentor, which are presented, on the ACVS website and at the annual ACVS Surgery Summit.

  • Initiate a mentor honor:

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 collect the donations. In so doing, the $1,000 benchmark will be reached quickly. The group leader simply mails the completed donation forms and payments to the ACVS Foundation office. Remember, it only takes $100 to get your honor started.
