Honor Your Mentor Funds Reach New Milestone

Training with the best leads to success. You can show your gratitude by recognizing a mentor who helped you in your career with a donation to an Honor Your Mentor (HYM) Fund through the NREF.

The HYM program started in 2014 with six funds and total pledges of $177,195 from 37 donors. Today, there are 54 active HYM funds with pledges totaling over $4.9 million from over 1,200 donors. The newest fund, the Michael T. Lawton Fund, supports clinical and basic science research, training and education in cerebrovascular neurosurgery at the Barrow Neurological Institute.

Maximize the impact of your donation by contributing to a fund supported by Matching Campaigns from the AANS/CNS Section on Disorders of the Spine and Peripheral Nerves and the Council of State Neurosurgical Societies.

A donation to any of these funds by December 31, 2018, will be matched:
