Help Support the Women in Athletic Training Research Endowment

FoundationThe NATA Research and Education Foundation’s Women in Athletic Training Research Endowment is about $6,000 short of reaching its goal and we would like your help to kick things into high gear before the 2015 Convention.

Here is the suggestion: It would be great that as many of us as possible make at $10 donation to the NATAREF in honor of a woman who was influential in your athletic training career.  It could be a mentor, preceptor, professor, colleague, classmate, family member…..anyone.

Here is the link to make a donation if you chose.  It’s simple and quick. Be sure to designate Women in Athletic Training Research Grant as your donation option.  A little farther down the page is a site for the name of the person you would like to honor.   Then it wraps up with credit card info, etc.

I hope you open your resources to make this small donation to honor someone who was big in your career.

About the Endowment:
The Women in Athletic Training Research Endowment, established in 2009, provides a Masters research grant of up to $1,000.

About Women in Athletic Training:
In 1972, there were only two graduate athletic training programs in the nation and only one accepted women.  Today, more than 51% of the NATA’s certified and associate membership is women and nearly 70% of student members are female. The success of so many women in the profession is the result of the tireless efforts of many. This endowment honors those individuals and provides continued support of women ATs as our profession grows and takes its place in the national health care picture.

Your contribution to The Women in Athletic Training Master’s Research Grant Endowment can honor the first women in our profession, recognize those that helped you on your way and demonstrate your commitment to the future of athletic training. Honor your mentors, your friends and your colleagues in athletic training through your support of this endowed grant and you will be a part of a continued investment in women in the profession of athletic training.

Commitment:  $25,000

Total Needed to Endow:  $6,628.10
