With Deep Appreciation
The Dermatology Foundation is grateful to its many members whose contributions ensure the DF has the funding needed to help develop and retain tomorrow's expert teachers, innovative researchers and master clinicians. With the strong support of all its 2016 members, the DF was able to award $2.6 million in research dollars to 52 promising individuals.
Major Gifts Bolster Work of DF

In 2016, the Foundation was fortunate to receive two extraordinary gifts:

Charles and Daneen Stiefel of Raleigh, North Carolina contributed $1 million to fund three additional Stiefel Scholar awards focused on skin cancer research beginning in 2018.

Eugene J. Van Scott, M.D., one of the ten DF founders, has donated $1 million to be allocated to the Research Endowment Fund to help ensure a constant source of funding for future investigators.

2016 Leadership Giving

The Foundation's Leaders Society, Annenberg Circle, AC Sustaining and Fitzpatrick members all demonstrated their commitment to the future of dermatology and were honored at the 2016 Leadership Recognition Gala in Orlando.
