Join the New ROI Sustainers' Circle

When you become a member of the ROI Sustainers’ Circle, you have the convenience of monthly giving and provide steady and reliable funding for research on the quality of life and life-saving benefits of radiation therapy. A monthly gift of $10, $15 or more, makes giving easy and often allows you to make a more generous gift to support radiation oncology research by breaking it down into smaller increments. To join the ROI Sustainers’ Circle, go to the online giving form and indicate that you want to make a monthly gift and designate the amount. The gift will be automatically charged to your credit card each month and, at the end of the year, you will receive recognition for the cumulative amount that you have given that year. You will be recognized on the ROI website and on the ROI Booth at the ASTRO Annual Meeting based on your total giving for the year.

Sameer Keole, MD, FASTRO, member of the ROI Sustainers’ Circle explains, “I firmly believe that most radiation oncologists believe in the mission and value of the ROI. But we just get busy with day-to-day life and forget to make a donation. …This is why I appreciate the monthly contribution option. This process took me two minutes to set up online. I make a modest contribution each month, but it adds up. I do not miss the money. And now I know that I am supporting the ROI and more specifically the researchers who are going to continue to push our field forward.”

You probably have other monthly commitments or subscriptions, like Netflix. Consider adding the ROI to that group with a monthly gift today and become a member of the ROI Sustainers’ Circle. Your monthly gift to the ROI will be a regular investment in the future of radiation oncology by providing dependable support for research to transform practice and improve patient outcomes.
