The Major Gift Recognition Program of the ACS Foundation

 

The Fellows Leadership Society (FLS) recognizes the contributions of Fellows and friends who have invested in the American College of Surgeons (ACS) through a major gift. Through leadership in giving, members of the Fellows Leadership Society enhance the philanthropic example established by the College’s founders. Since the society’s founding in 1987, Fellows and friends of the College have contributed more than $29 million, thereby allowing the College to award millions of dollars in the form of scholarships and research grants to deserving young surgeons as well as support for other ACS nonrevenue programs.
