Leading Radiology into the Future: a Campaign to Benefit the Radiology Leadership Institute®

The phase I campaign goal is to raise $5 million to further develop and strengthen the RLI.


The ACR has launched a national campaign, with a phase 1 goal to raise $5 million for the programmatic and technological development of the RLI and to establish an endowment. The ACR has invested $1.5 million of its own funds to ensure the success of this important initiative. The ACR has also pledged an additional $1.2 million to the campaign to reaffirm its support and build momentum.

A one-time pledged investment, payable over a five-year period, will assist in making the RLI a self-sustaining program, benefiting generations of future radiology leaders.

All corporations, practices and individuals who make a gift during the Leading Radiology into the Future campaign will be recognized in perpetuity as a Radiology Leadership Institute donor.

During the Leading Radiology into the Future campaign, all donors will be publicized in select ACR publications, on the ACR Foundation and RLI websites, and at the annual meetings of the ACR and the Radiology Leadership Institute.

Contributions are tax deductible and gifts are encouraged to be unrestricted.
