Our Donors Are Amazing!
Since 2009, nearly 500 individuals or families made a monetary contribution to The Perry Initiative, many of them supporting year after year. Wow!
Supporters have many personal reasons why they chose The Perry Initiative.
When I was my granddaughter's age these types of opportunities did not exist - my options were a day with a student nurse or candy striper. I cannot tell you how impressed I am with this experience and opportunity!
I donated in honor of all my Perry friends, mentors, and volunteers and the ways they continue to inspire me in my career!
My daughter loved her experience with the Perry Initiative. She's on fire from it and wants her own suturing kit!
I donated in honor of all women in ortho.
We are honored that donors chose to stand with us and invest in the future of the amazing women we serve. All Perry Initiative programs remain free of cost to participants due to their generosity, and donations are vital to continue the high level of impact, consistency and success we've built since 2009.
Over 16,000 women have participated in Perry Outreach Programs and Medical Student Outreach Programs.
Since 2009, The Perry Initiative has steadily built a network of mentors and volunteers through smart expansion of our nationwide program locations.
85% of our POP alumnae choose STEM majors in college. 21% of eligible MSOP alumnae specialize in orthopaedic surgery, compared to just 1% of all female medical students.
