Corporate giving

The R&E Foundation’s corporate supporters know that there’s power in investing in the future of radiology.

Your company can provide the seed money our investigators need to make major discoveries and advancements in their field while earning brand recognition at the RSNA annual meeting and throughout the rest of the year.

Explore the benefits of participating in our Vanguard Program or Leadership Circle below and find out how you can support our efforts to advance radiologic research and education.

Vanguard Program

Companies who participate in the Vanguard Program join an elite group of donors that support endowed grant awards, with opportunities for naming rights.

Grant awards provide seed money for investigators who are working toward discoveries critical to the advancement of radiologic research. A variety of grants and funding levels are available and can be tailored to meet giving preferences.

All Vanguard donors receive benefits and recognition of their contributions to our Foundation during the funding term, including a named grant.
