CSA is launching a Capital Campaign in commemoration of the 75th Annual Meeting anniversary in 2018.
The CSA Foundation started in the early 1990’s because of diminished funding of the NIH. Since then, CSAF
has provided over $250,000 in research grants to 30 recipients. In a recent survey of past grant winners, 90%
reported that the CSAF grant money helped facilitate preliminary data which led to greater funding. The
Capital Campaign seeks to raise $350,000 to ensure future opportunities for emerging young surgeons for
years to come.

SUPPORT THE FOUNDATION
The foundation is serving an ever more important role in our Association by supporting scholarship and
surgical research through its awards program. We would like to increase the amounts of these awards and support our new and younger members in the Association. Investing in our younger members is important because they will be the future of our Association. You can do this by making a donation to our general Foundation Fund or to our newly established Nonie Lowry Fund. DONATE TODAY!
NONIE LOWRY FUND
In response to members asking to make a donation in Nonie’s honor, the Foundation officers decided to establish this Fund. The purpose of the Fund would be to support programs consistent with the mission of the Foundation and for functions that would please Nonie. Examples might be prize money for the best paper award, support of scholarships or lectureships as they might become options in the future, dinner dance expenses and the like.
