We are deeply grateful to Ray Barton, Randy Johnson, MD, Thomas A. Keller, III and Frank Tonnemaker who completed their terms of service in 2008. Adjusting to the economic challenges that occurred during the year, the Foundation ended 2008 with a reduced endowment and near break-even operations. For 2009, we have adopted a basic operating budget, the core of which is 5% below 2008 levels, as a cautionary effort. Nevertheless, given our mission and our record of success, we remain optimistic that with loyal and generous support from donors, strong Board, physician and staff leadership, and efficient management of resources, we will continue to make significant contributions to cardiovascular health in the year ahead. We look forward to the coming year and to taking full advantage of the significant groundwork that has been laid in 2008. Our research and education programs will continue to grow, attracting James V. Toscano national attention and attaining successful results. We invite you to page through this report to learn more about our accomplishments in 2008 and our ambitious plans for 2009. Sincerely, Stuart Nolan James V. Toscano Board of Directors, Chair President
