Robert C. Bartlett Innovation in Fundraising Award
The Foundation for Physical Therapy proudly presents this year’s award to Marilyn Moffat, PT, DPT, PhD, DSc (hon), FAPTA, CSCS, CEEAA. The award is named for Robert C. Bartlett, PT, MA, FAPTA, a former chair and member of the Board of Trustees who provided structure and guidance during the Foundation’s early years. The award is presented annually to a group or individual for demonstrating leadership, creativity, and initiative to develop, coordinate, and execute an innovative fundraising activity to benefit the Foundation.
Dr. Moffat has supported the Foundation’s activities since its inception. She continually strives to create greater awareness about the Foundation and its mission. In 1988 Moffat developed and spearheaded the Split Raffle fundraiser by annually reaching out and engaging donors nationwide. This effort sustained the Foundation during the early years and went on to raise over $2 million for physical therapy research in its 23 year history.
Dr. Moffat has been and continues to be one of the Foundation’s greatest assets, working hard and volunteering countless hours. She served on the Executive Committee of the successful major gifts campaign, “Destination Research Excellence”. As part of the major gifts campaign, Moffat established the Marilyn Moffat Endowment Fund for Geriatric Research in 2007. Moffat’s unfailing commitment to the Foundation continues today as she coordinates and leads the new annual fundraising effort, the President’s Sustaining Fund.
Dr. Marilyn Moffat is a Professor of Physical Therapy in the Department at New York University, where she directs both the professional doctoral program (DPT) and the post-professional graduate master’s degree program in pathokinesiology. She is currently serving her second 4-year term as president of the World Confederation for Physical Therapy (WCPT). She served on the Board of Trustees of the Foundation for Physical Therapy from 2004-2011. Moffat also completed a six-year term as the President of APTA.
