We are confident the EER Fund will soon grow to the point where we will be able to fund research solely from the principle. Donations to the EER are fully tax-deductible to the extent of the law.
1) Retirement Assets: By naming the AIUM as a beneficiary of your retirement plan, you can support the EER by leaving all or a portion of your remaining retirement assets. This includes IRAs, 401(k), and pension plans.
Those who support the EER understand the importance of research grants to help investigators, both scientists and medical professionals, to gain protected time to complete their research. Medical professionals often feel pressure to choose between seeing patients and investing their time in valuable research. Grant funding relieves some of this pressure for research teams and their institutions. The EER shows the AIUM's commitment to raising awareness and advancing medical ultrasound by encouraging investigators to thrive in their research initiatives, leading to medical breakthroughs and superior patient care.
The American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine is a multidisciplinary association dedicated to advancing the safe and effective use of ultrasound in medicine through professional and public education, research, development of guidelines, and accreditation.
