Welcome to New Members of the Cushing Circle of Giving

The Cushing Circle of Giving was established as a lifetime giving society to recognize donors who support research and education efforts that enhance and confirm the critical role neurosurgeons play in improving lives. These individuals and institutions have made a substantial commitment to the future of neurosurgery.

  • Flagg Flanagan

The Cushing Circle of Giving recognizes members and organizations with pledges or cumulative donations of $25,000 or more. All NREF donations made during your lifetime apply toward membership in the Cushing Circle. Pledges may be paid as a one-time contribution or over a period of years.

Be the spark that inspires the next generation of neurosurgeons.

Donations may be targeted to the fund of your choice. Select from over 80 funds, including 53 Honor Your Mentor funds, QOD initiatives, the Van Wagenen Fellowship Fund or education, research or outcomes in your subspecialty.
