The mission of the ACVS Foundation is to support the advancement of surgical care of all animals. As an independently-chartered nonprofit philanthropic organization, the ACVS Foundation is devoted to the advancement of surgical care of all animals through funding of educational and research opportunities for veterinary surgery residents and board-certified veterinary surgeons.
ACVS Foundation 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.
