TSF/STS Surgeon Match Challenge

The TSF/STS Surgeon Match Challenge:

About the Challenge: On May 1, 2020, the TSF/STS Surgeon Match Challenge launched. This means that all surgeon donations will have double the impact. The Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS) already covers all administrative expenses for the Foundation so that 100% of your donations can be used toward award programs to advance cardiothoracic surgery. Please consider making a donation today!

About Your Match Dollars: Surgeon donations made between May 1, 2020, and December 31, 2020, will be distributed to the fund designated by the donor. Corresponding “match dollars” will be directed solely toward TSF’s “area of greatest need,” which is a fund primarily used to award research grants. The STS will match surgeon donations up to $275,000 (match amount was increased).

TSF Progress: In 2020, TSF awarded $1,056,600 in grants for 36 recipients.

Invest Today: Please consider making your year-end donation online today. Your donation is an investment in the future of cardiothoracic surgery research and has a 100% return.

TSF is a 501(c)(3) Illinois Not For Profit Corporation. Contributions made to TSF qualify as a charitable deduction for federal income tax purposes. Please consult with your tax adviser to determine the amount allowed by law. No goods or services will be provided in exchange for your generous financial donation.
