1913 Legacy Campaign Honoring ACS Centennial Celebration

The ACS Foundation Board of Directors has launched the 1913 Legacy Campaign in honor of the ACS Centennial celebration and in plans to raise transformative gifts for the College’s second century.

The ACS Foundation’s mission is to promote voluntary philanthropy from Fellows and friends to support the College’s goals for improving surgical patient care and ensuring the professional standing of surgeons wherever they practice. The Foundation provides an opportunity to endow the future of our discipline, and to date, Fellows and friends have contributed more than $1.3 million towards the campaign goal of $5 million. Southern California Chapter members have contributed significantly and generously to the Foundation in the past, and it is important that we continue to do so in this new campaign. 

For more information on how to participate in this unprecedented campaign, please contact the ACS Foundation at 312/202-5338 or visit
