MAGISTRO FOUNDERS SOCIETY

The Magistro Founders Society is named in recognition of the Foundation’s first president and chairman, Charles M. Magistro, to highlight the impact that vision and steadfast support can have on paving the way for future generations of investigators. Each year, the Foundation recognizes couples or individuals whose combined personal, or cumulative giving has reached $5,000 or more as members of the Magistro Founders Society. All outright contributions made to the Foundation are included in this total, regardless of the gift designation.

Society members’ demonstrate a strong commitment to supporting physical therapy research and their gifts allow the Foundation to provide funding to some of today’s brightest physical therapist investigators. We are grateful for the generosity of these donors and their continued support of our mission.
