Glass Slipper Pledges $1 Million to Neuroscience Research
In January, the Glass Slipper Guild pledged $1 million to create a research endowment for the CHOC Neuroscience Institute. So far, the guild has raised $210,000 toward their five-year goal.
Because endowment funds are invested rather than used as cash for immediate needs, a percentage of the income growth funds a specific program, making a lasting impact on the research that can be done at CHOC.
According to Rebecca Anderson and Amy Webb, co-presidents of the Glass Slipper Guild, ?we knew that we wanted to raise funds for the CHOC Neuroscience Institute, and an endowment seemed like the best way to provide lasting support for muchneeded neurological research. We really are impressed with the clinical advances the Neuroscience Institute has made, and the dedication of its team.?
According to Dr. Muhonen, medical director of the CHOC Neuroscience Institute, ?this endowment from the Glass Slipper Guild is a permanent investment in CHOC and our commitment to providing children with the best healthcare possible. With this gift, we are able to fund a dedicated research position at CHOC. This endowment truly is a gift that keeps on giving.?
