New giving society supports Pauley Heart Center

To celebrate the generosity of our supporters, the Pauley Heart Center Advisory Board has created the Pauley Society.

Members of the Pauley Society are dedicated supporters of VCU Health Pauley Heart Center who believe in our mission to save and improve the lives of people with heart disease and commit to providing an annual donation of $1,000 or more to any Pauley Heart fund. Their donations provide Pauley Heart Center director Greg Hundley, M.D. and his team with a reliable base of support to ensure they can continue their excellence in patient care, research and education.

“Coalescing individuals around a common goal, we can defeat heart disease,” said Roger Boevé, advisory board chair.

Even in these difficult times, Pauley’s world-renowned doctors and researchers are working to expand their research portfolio, recruit additional researchers and provide cardiovascular care to those that other regional hospitals could not manage. “Without the help of our consortium of patients, faculty, staff, donors and friends, it would be impossible to continue our important work,” Boevé said.

Pauley Society funds will supplement the grant money Pauley Heart Center receives from the National Institutes of Health.

“Pauley Society gifts leverage other dollars,” explained advisory board member Ken Blaisdell. “Your $1,000 (or more) to the Pauley Heart Center can be used to augment National Institutes of Health research grants, for example, as discretionary funds to cover expenses not directly covered by them. It can make a measurable difference.”

NIH grants come with restrictions. Pauley Society donations allow Hundley the freedom of movement to deploy those dollars where they can best be used.

Members of the Pauley Society will have their names listed in The Beat and on the Pauley Heart Center website. Additionally, they will be invited to intimate events hosted by an advisory board member and have access to exclusive webinars featuring faculty and other consortium members.

“The Pauley Society will be a compelling force to elevate the Pauley Heart Center to the top tier of heart centers in the country,” Boevé said.
