Your Annual Fund gift provides funding to build a continuous pipeline of research that addresses the most pressing questions and priorities in interventional radiology—fueling the insights that inform our practice and make our field stronger and more effective. Each year, the Annual Fund supports research award and grant recipients that foster the passion of young investigators, clinical trials and registries that address high priority topics in IR, educational programs that introduce medical students to IR research, and multi-disciplinary research consensus panels and summits that discuss critical research areas.
With your gift to the Annual Fund, we can unlock the limitless potential of IR to improve lives and optimize patient care everywhere…together.
With an Annual Fund gift of $1,000 or more each calendar year or making cumulative gifts totaling $1,000 or more throughout the calendar year, you will be welcomed into the SIR Foundation Pioneer Circle. Learn more about the recently enhanced Pioneer Circle recognition levels and benefits that appropriately acknowledge your generosity and recognize the role that donors like you play in bringing IR research to fruition.
The Founders' Society recognizes SIR Foundation's most generous supporters who have made lifetime gifts totaling $25,000 to $1 million or more. This society is named for the nine founders of the Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiology Research and Education Foundation (CIRREF), which became SIR Foundation in 2005. Learn more and meet the 29 individuals who qualify for this honor.
"The grant I received from SIR Foundation played a critical role in my development. The process of applying for and executing the grant catalyzed my scientific process and provided invaluable administrative experience. Both are critical components of a collaborative research career. I also want to emphasize the foundation that is has provided me in terms of creating a record of successful research and obtaining preliminary data for my next application."
— Premal S. Trivedi, MD, MS, 2017 SIR Foundation HPI Cost Effectiveness Grant recipient
Gifts of publicly traded securities that have appreciated in value allow you to avoid capital gains taxes while also receiving a tax deduction for your gift. SIR Foundation benefits by selling the stock without paying taxes on the gain, and you benefit from making a contribution that would be larger than what you might have been able to donate in cash.
