2018 COP Donation Derby


 *Don't forget to email akreiss@myast.org if you would like your donation to be allocated to specific COP(s).

Welcome to the 2018 COP Donation Derby!

Thank you for your participation in the AST Communities of Practice (COPs). Our COPs allow members to connect, share resources, and advocate for the patients we serve. Every year, we hold a COP giving contest. This contest not only helps the AST, but it allows COPs to fund their missions.

➡️ How it Works

Make any donation to the AST or the AST's Power2Save initiative between October 13 - December 31, 2018.
50% of your donation will go directly to your COP(s). If a COP's percentage of member donations is 10% or higher, the COP will receive 75% of its donations. The COP with the largest dollar amount that does not reach a 10% participation rate will also receive 75% of the donations they raise. 
If you are a member of multiple COPs, your donation will be split evenly between COPs. To request specific designations, please contact Anne Kreiss at akreiss@myast.org.
There will be two $1,000 prizes given to the winning COPs:

  • The COP with the highest percentage of members who make donations.
  • The COP with the largest dollar amount of donations.

The results will be updated weekly on the Donation Derby webpage. Check back for updates on how your COP is performing!

All donations made through December 31, 2018, will count towards this contest. 

Members may designate their donations to specific areas of the AST including Research, Education, Advocacy, Fellows, and the AST Endowment Fund. For more information, visit the donation page. Members are also eligible for member giving opportunities. All donations are tax deductible. 

Donation Derby - By Percentage of Member Donations 

Last year, the Tx Pharmacy COP (Tx Pharm) had nearly 17% of its members participate in the Donation Derby - pushing them across the finish line.  The COP with the largest percentage of participating members will win this portion of the contest. Any donation amounts from individuals will count towards this race. All donations made through the AST donation page or Power2Save will count towards this contest.

Donation Derby - By Total COP Donation Amount

Last year, Liver and Intestinal COP (LICOP)  did a fantastic job raising funds for the contest. LICOP was able to raise nearly $10,000, This year, we are giving the COP with the largest donation amount the chance to put additional funds into their COP. 

The track ends at $3,000, but the COP with the largest amount of donations will win this race. All donations made through the AST donation page or Power2Save will count towards this contest.
