Operation M.O.R.E. was created in 2010 by the ASMBS Foundation to raise Monies for Obesity Research and Education. Fundings from the Operation M.O.R.E. campaign helped kick-start educational programs, awarded research grants and supported advocacy initiatives regarding the obesity epidemic. The goal of Operation M.O.R.E. was to raise $5 million within the first five years and $10 million within 10 years to ensure the needs of the ASMBS and its members.
Through individual and corporate contributions, Operation M.O.R.E. raised $925,000!
We have big dreams and the only way we can make them come true is through a continuous process of fundraising. We want as many members to contribute as they can, at whatever dollar amount they can afford. Big donations are important, but even a lot of small donations can make a very big difference.
The ASMBS Foundation is for the benefit of our members, but we cannot exist without the support of our members. We need to do a better job explaining the important work we do so members make contributing to their foundation more of a priority.
