The association is proud to honor our exceptional supporters through our national giving societies – the Cor Vitae Society and Paul Dudley White Legacy Society.
Cor Vitae Society: the AHA’s annual giving society, founded in 2012. With a vision to engage passionate individual supporters, we seek champions across communities to help us retain, grow, and engage the broad spectrum of our membership base.
Latin for heart of life – Cor Vitae celebrates individual gifts of $5,000 or more to further our mission. Lifetime member recognition begins with $500,000 in cumulative commitments. Members give through local campaigns such as Heart & Stroke Ball, Go Red for Women and Heart Walk, as well as through programmatic mission-driven initiatives.
Paul Dudley White Legacy Society: honors the generosity of individuals who have left a gift through their estate plan or established a life income gift benefiting the association.
Named for one of our founders, Dr. Paul Dudley White, considered the father of American cardiology, members not only continue Dr. White’s legacy, but also create a legacy of their own.
