Scope & Programs

The AmSECT Foundation's scope encompasses educational support, scientific research, recognition of significant professional achievement, and support to other nonprofit organizations whose activities are in consonance with the Foundation's purpose.

The Professional Recognition fund supports the recognition of extraordinary professional accomplishments that ultimately benefit patient care. This includes AmSECT committees Perfusion Without Borders and Achievement Recognition. Detailed information about this program can be obtained by contacting the Foundation's National Office.

Mary Hartley Student Scholarship Fund

In 2020, the AmSECT Foundation is thrilled to announce the new AmSECT Mary Hartley Student Scholarship Fund. This scholarship program will provide a second-year perfusion student with a $5,000 scholarship. The winner of the scholarship will be selected based on the strength of the applicant's personal statement and letter of recommendation from a professor at their perfusion training program. Please check back in in 2021 for more information on scholarship requirements. 

Foundation Contributions

The AmSECT Foundation accepts both unrestricted and restricted donations. A restricted gift specifies exactly the terms and conditions under which use of the proceeds may be conducted. The restriction may be one of purpose, e.g., research only, amount, criteria, or combinations. While restricted gifts are welcome, they can be more difficult to administer. Unrestricted gifts are made with no terms regarding their use as long as it is within the Foundation's charter.

The Foundation welcomes gifts of any amount. All contributors will receive an acknowledgment, suitable for tax purposes, and public recognition unless otherwise requested.

There are also a variety of other ways to support the Foundation's programs. The Foundation's legal and tax planning counsels are available to respond to questions regarding estate planning, endowments, trusts, and designated beneficiaries for insurance, to name only some of the possibilities.
