American College Of Surgeons - Inspiring Quality: Highest Standards, Better Outcomes

Major Gift Societies and Recognition

Fellows Leadership Society

Regardless of the changes occurring in health care, surgeons will surely continue to play a leading role in the practice of medicine.

That is what the Fellows Leadership Society (FLS) is about—ensuring that future surgeons maintain their leadership role. Individual members of the Society further that cause through personal giving. Collectively those gifts give the FLS the ability and strength to fulfill its mission.

Mayne Heritage Society

The Mayne Heritage Society is a donor recognition program; members are individuals who wish to support the mission of the American College of Surgeons (ACS) through a planned gift of estate commitment.

The most important benefit you will receive from joining the Mayne Heritage Society is the satisfaction derived from making a lasting contribution to the College’s long-term success and continued growth as it safeguards the standards of the surgical profession and patient care. 

1913 Legacy Campaign

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

Philanthropic investments within three priority campaign initiatives will benefit the surgeon, the profession, and the societal good and will help shape the next 100 years of the ACS. These pillars of investment will sustain meritorious programs and support newly established initiatives.

Distinguished Philanthropist Award

The ACS Foundation proudly acknowledges the philanthropy of individuals who have distinguished themselves through their extraordinary investment in the mission of the College. We are pleased to honor them with the Distinguished Philanthropist Award.
