AHRA: The Association for Medical Imaging Management

The AHRA Education Foundation retained Association Development Solutions (ADS) to develop and implement the Foundation’s first ever campaign effort, a $2.5 million initiative to support education and research. Informed by a comprehensive feasibility and planning study, AHRA leadership and ADS executives surpassed the initial goal in just 18 months, and in the process, secured the Foundation’s first seven-figure contribution that funded its vision of creating an online education institute. Since the campaign, ADS has assisted the AHRA Education Foundation with securing renewable commitments from corporate stakeholders and members, increasing annual support 100% in just three years.

In 2012, following a second comprehensive feasibility study, ADS was again retained by the AHRA Education Foundation to assist in the development and execution of a 5-year, $3 million capital campaign. The campaign exceeded its goal by reaching $3.1 million in August 2013. ADS is currently assisting AHRA through an Annual Appeal and an extensive Corporate Relations Program that has seen yearly contributions increase nearly three-fold since the program’s revitalization. This service is providing continued member annual appeal guidance, cultivating new corporate relationships, and facilitating the execution of programmatic development.
