Started in 2012, #GivingTuesday has now become the biggest giving collaboration in the world, raising $380M in one day in 2018. It is celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving and is designed to inspire and prompt generosity and giving after the deluge of shopping on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. #GivingTuesday takes place on December 3, 2019 this year.
What is 10 for Tuesday?
The ACR Foundation is joining the #GivingTuesday movement with our latest fundraising campaign, 10 for Tuesday. All gifts made during the 10 for Tuesday campaign will support health policy research through the Harvey L. Neiman Health Policy Institute . The campaign is ongoing and will end on the day of #GivingTuesday, December 3.
Our goal with this campaign is to inspire a giving movement within the radiology community that helps secure our profession's future. By giving just $10 each, radiologists across the country can come together to collectively take an active role in ensuring that the radiology profession not only survives, but thrives.
Why Support Health Policy Research?
By supporting the ACRF's health policy research initiatives, you and your fellow radiologists are helping the NHPI produce real data that informs real decisions. Without credible, evidence-based research, we cannot effectively inform policy that supports the value of radiology in the evolving team-based health care model.The most significant impact to date is the critical role that evidence-based research played in rolling back the Multiple Procedure Payment Reduction (MPPR) from 25% to 5%, restoring more than $50 million per year in reimbursements to radiologists.
How Can I Help Spread the Word?
You can help us spread the word about the importance of health policy research by:
