    Now, more than ever, neurosurgery needs your support. The way forward, for the specialty and next generation of neurosurgeons, is through education and research.

    Your Cushing Bowl team will help support NREF in fundraising and raising awareness about our programs. We hope this experience allows you to engage with friends, colleagues, and alumni because we're stronger together.

    Over the years, with the help of generous donors like you, the Neurosurgery Research & Education Foundation (NREF) has invested over $30 million in neurosurgery — opening doors to future breakthroughs.

    This investment makes an impact.

    The NREF's strategic use of funds supports neurosurgeons' future success. Since its inception, the NREF has awarded 273 grants totaling over $12 million. NREF grant recipients have gone on to receive over $353 million in NIH funding.

    No matter where you are in your career, we've all been influenced by those who gave so the next generation could have a brighter future.

    Join those who supported you by participating in the Cushing Bowl challenge:

    • Make a gift to the NREF
    • Answer trivia questions
    • Share with your friends and contacts via social media

    The winning program will receive the Cushing Trophy and a visiting lecture from a member of AANS/NREF leadership.

    Thank you for including the NREF in your philanthropy. Together, we will advance neurosurgery and improve patients' lives.
