Alexandria, Va. – The American Association for Dental Research (AADR) is pleased to announce that the AADR Legacy Society has been established, thanks to a generous legacy gift from longstanding members Sharon K. Grayden and Stephen C. Bayne, who is also an AADR Past President. The AADR Legacy Society consists of individuals who have committed future assets, through estate and planned giving, to AADR, thereby ensuring support for future initiatives and growth of the Association.
"It is our intention to move forward with a legacy gift to the American Association for Dental Research," said AADR donors Sharon Grayden and Stephen Bayne (wife and husband). "The Association has been an important part of our personal history and successes. We want the best possible future for everyone involved and we have complete confidence that the legacy gift will be used wisely."
The generous gift from the Sharon Grayden and Stephen Bayne trust is to be used by AADR for unrestricted use.
"AADR is the professional organization best positioned to support and represent the oral health research community, and the Association places particular emphasis in developing the next generation of a diverse biomedical research workforce," said AADR President Jack L. Ferracane. "We are honored and extend our gratitude to Sharon Grayden and Past President Stephen Bayne for their substantial commitment to the Association, which will enable AADR to work toward its mission of advancing research and increasing knowledge for the improvement of oral health."
