Thank you for your interest in the Annual Fund. Each year we rely on the generosity of friends of the Center to generously contribute to the Annual Fund. Gifts to the Annual Fund help provide funding to the best and brightest researchers to explore novel areas of research. Your financial support will have a direct and immediate impact on all aspects of the Center – the infrastructure, personnel, and education. Additionally, Annual funds provide the flexibility to respond quickly to new opportunities and unexpected needs.

The Annual Fund runs yearly from October 1 through September 30. This year we have an Annual Fund goal of $250,000 and will need everyone’s help to meet it. Every contribution, of any size, helps the Center fulfill its mission to “Revolutionize imaging for the advancement of science and medicine. Inspire, educate, and inform.”

Gifts of $1,000 or more are at the Champion level. The Center’s Champions collectively represent the most generous and committed supporters of our mission. The Champions Dinner is held at the beginning of every academic year to thank these vital contributors.

Through your affiliation with the Center, you have come to know the Center as a place of academic excellence and passionate researchers. Your support of the Annual Fund is critical to upholding the Center’s mission and our standing as a leader in the realm of biomedical imaging

With your support, the Center will:

  • Maintain its outstanding facilities
  • Recruit the best and brightest from all over the world
  • Increase community education programs
  • Provide our dedicated faculty with competitive salaries and professional development opportunities to ensure continued academic excellence

Your gift to the Annual Fund will make a difference in the lives of the Center’s faculty and dedicated research staff.  Please contact me at 617-643-3724 or with any questions you may have, and we hope to see you our Champions Dinner in the fall.
