TSF/STS Surgeon Match Challenge

About the Challenge: On May 14, 2022, the TSF/STS Surgeon Match Challenge launched. This means that all surgeon donations will have double the impact. Your funds will support research, education, leadership, and surgical outreach programs for cardiothoracic surgery. The Foundation’s administrative expenses are covered, so 100% of your donation will go directly to the fund of your choice. Please consider making a donation today!

About Your Match Dollars: Surgeon donations 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 a total of $280,000. For funds approved under the spending policy for the Surgeon Match Challenge, STS will seek to match dollar-for-dollar surgeon contributions up to a $25,000 maximum recognizing potential limitations of available funds.

TSF Progress: In 2022, TSF awarded $1,452,750 in grants and scholarships for 40 recipients. In 2023, the Foundation’s goal is to issue more than $1.5 million in individual grants.

Invest Today: Please consider making your 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.
