Dear APSR members,
On behalf of the Society, we would like to express our gratitude from the bottom of our hearts to you for your generous donations to the Asian Pacific Thoracic Association (APTA), the organization registered as the legal entity of the APSR.
By the end of June 2017, the fiscal year-end of the APTA, the target number of donors was reached for the first year's requirement towards the APTA's recognition as an authorized non-profit organization to gain tax exemption status
As mentioned earlier, we are required to also have 100 donors during this second fiscal year in order to apply for the APTA's recognition. Therefore, we will shortly start the donation campaign again and ask for your help for the APTA to achieve more than 100 donations of JPY3,000 (USD40).
Again, thank you very much for your great cooperation.
Register of Donors
The following members have kindly sent a financial donation towards the development of activities in promoting healthcare training, research, education, and advocacy in the Asia-Pacific region.
The APSR strives to enhance education through ESAPs (Educational Seminars of the APSR), in addition to APSR Short-Term Research/Training Scholarships and travel awards for young researchers to broaden their experience in another country.
To make this happen, members are invited to make an annual donation of US$40 (or more) for the APSR to invest funds into such educational projects to enable young researchers to raise their skill level more rapidly than before.
The purpose of the donation is twofold: First, to increase these educational opportunities to young researchers and enrich seminar content, making them more beneficial. Second, each donation of US$40 or more will count towards the Society's goal to be exempt from paying tax. This in turn will increase the amount available for activities in promoting healthcare training, research, education and advocacy in the Asia-Pacific region. To reach this goal, we need annual donations from at least 100 APSR members each year.
The following members have shown their eagerness to see these goals met.
