The Aesthetic Surgery Education and Research Foundation

Dr. and Mrs. Joseph M. Gryskiewicz Join the President’s Circle Print

As new cosmetic surgery procedures rapidly develop, so does the need for research strategically positioned to enhance the practice, expand surgical options and keep patients safe. Many have recognized this need and have donated to the Aesthetic Surgery Education and Research Foundation (ASERF) from anywhere between $1000 to over $100,000 as a planned gift.

President-Elect of ASERF, Dr. Joseph M. Gryskiewicz and his wife Corky from Burnsville, MN, join a distinctive group of contributors who have realized the long-term need for aesthetic research funding. Dr. Gryskiewicz explains, “Corky and I contribute to plastic surgery research because we understand the need for funding to pave the way for new discoveries and to enhance patient safety.”

Paving the Way for Research
Their generous gift of $50,000 places them in the President’s Circle, which includes donors who have given gifts of $50,000 up front or $100,000 or more from a life insurance policy, will or trust. Most who have given in this category believe that they have received so much through their specialty that they want to secure the future and make sure their donation makes an impact.

“I am curious by nature and have served on the Research Grant Committee and co-moderated the Hot Topics program for years, so I am acutely aware and optimistic of the unlimited potential that lies in front of us,” says Dr. Gryskiewicz. He adds, “But the specialty needs us to help fund the research that will keep plastic surgery ahead of the curve. In our minds, it is a no-brainer to contribute to ASERF.”

How to Contribute?
It is ASERF’s goal to select the best grant applications and fund research projects that will specifically improve and support the subspecialty of aesthetic plastic surgery. Those who contribute can give a one-time gift, an annual donation, through a specific project, mentor or a life insurance policy or trust. Members who are revising their wills and estates can easily bequest a predetermined amount to ASERF or begin an annual donation schedule.

Donate Today
Regardless of how you donate, ASERF needs your support to continue sustaining groundbreaking research and grants that benefit patients, physicians and the entire field of plastic surgery.
