2016 Harman Award
AlloSource: 2016 Harman Award Recipient
The 2016 Harman Award was presented to AlloSource for its partnership with the Phoenix Society, one that Society President Lorraine Carli described as having “a longlasting impact on the support and services accessible to the burn survivor community.” The annual award recognizes a Phoenix Society supporter who has had a significant impact on the burn community and Phoenix Society through philanthropic leadership.
AlloSource, one of the largest providers of cartilage, cellular, bone, skin and soft tissue allografts in the U.S., has made a 10-year commitment to further expand the Phoenix Educational Grant, or PEG, program, with annual grants of $25,000. The company also, as the Society’s anchor Vision Partner, has committed to the largest gift in the Society’s history, which will be used over the next 5 years toward the goal of ensuring that no burn survivor ever faces the journey of recovery without support. “They are leading the way to ensure there is greater access to the Phoenix Society’s community of support and services,” explained Phoenix Society executive director Amy Acton. However, AlloSource was recognized not only for its monetary support but also because the organization is “committed to walking alongside us during this time of rapid growth and transformation,” added the Society president. Accepting the award on behalf of AlloSource was Tom Cycyota, AlloSource president and CEO.
