Thank you to our contributors

    “Altruism can be expressed in many forms, but at its heart, you’ll always find a focus on community.”

    “If one person quits smoking, gets their asthma treated or gets the support they need from our local disease specific societies, then we made a difference. Better yet, we did it because we care. How can you not love being part of something this great?”

    “In our personal and professional lives, we need others with knowledge, wisdom, and experience to direct and guide us. As we meet those who become our mentors – or whom we mentor – we know that they are special and that our relationship is unique. We invite the development of honest communication, which benefits and blesses both of us, and others as well.”

    “It just makes sense to be involved in an institution which is passionate about taking care of patients and clinicians. The CHEST Foundation has given tens of millions of dollars in funding for grants to help shape the future of the education, the future of research, and the future of better patient care.”

    “I continually give to and support the Foundation because it is an excellent champion of lung health, whether it be through patient education, research that will help patients down the line, or community events. It makes you feel good to know the Foundation is out there doing that work.”

    “My mom always wanted to help anybody — literally anybody — whether she knew you for five minutes or a lifetime. Helping those families navigate their illness and helping the actual patient through it and having the support that she had was very important to her.”

    “Mark Rosen, who passed away on July 3, 2019, was a beloved member of the American College of CHEST Physicians for more than 40 years, earning the esteemed Master FCCP designation in 2013. Dr. Rosen served the college as President from 2006-2007, and continues to make a lasting impression on chest medicine, that will continue for many years to come.”

  • Champions Circle Annual Fund Giving Club Donors

    Members of our Champions Circle fund our annual programming and advance our mission to champion lung health by supporting clinical research, patient education, and community service. Advances in lung health medicine are made possible because these members believe that by working together, we can truly improve patient outcomes. We want to thank them for that commitment.

    “As a pulmonary fibrosis patient, our father Irv Feldman forgot about his illness and inability to breathe when he played poker. Although our father, Irv, lost his battle, we are honored to partner with the CHEST Foundation to continue that fight, and bring the joy of our poker and casino night event to improve the lives of people currently living with pulmonary fibrosis. It is an honor to do this event in memory of my dad and see the impact we create with the CHEST Foundation.”

    “Our new initiatives have allowed us to focus our renewed energy toward life-changing resources and opportunities to truly advocate in the best interests of our patients and all those suffering from lung disease.”

    “I believe the foundation is committed to listening and serving the entire community — patients, caregivers, researchers, clinicians, donors, and so many more members. I think we are ready to take this commitment to the next level and I want to be there when they do—with my time and resources.”

    “Over the years, the foundation has made substantive positive contributions in promoting health, high quality and equity in healthcare, education, and research. These donations strengthen CHEST as an organization.”

    “Until the day comes that we’re surprised about gender  inequities in health and healthcare and those gaps are closed, we need to raise our voices to speak about this as women AND men at work, at home and in our communities.”

  • Beyond Our Walls Capital Campaign Donors

    Beyond Our Walls capital campaign donors include our CHEST members, friends, family foundations, private practice groups, academic groups, corporations, and staff. More than 95 cents of every dollar they contribute goes toward advancing our mission-based programming, and we could not fulfill our mission without them. We’re truly grateful for their time, effort, and philanthropic support of our endeavors.

Donor Spotlight: Your contributions in action

We’re proud to say that more than 95 cents of every dollar we raise goes toward advancing our programming, which includes more than $10 million in funding for community service and clinical research projects.

OCTOBER 2020 ISSUE

Trust, access, and equity start with listening and outreach.

On September 17, the first of five online conversations took place in Jackson, Mississippi, as part of a five-visit, virtual Listening Tour led by the CHEST Foundation and supported by the Erin Popovich Endowment. Local health-care experts, community resource groups, civic leaders, and patients were invited to talk about the state of pulmonary health care in their communities and the barriers to treatment they face.

“Asking these questions in a community-led forum has never really been done by us. We tend to think we know the answers before we actually listen. That’s what makes this different,” said Anderson. Other virtual listening events are planned for New York, Chicago, San Francisco, and South Texas in October and November.
