Dear Worthy State Deputy and State Life Director,
In the Supreme Knight’s Annual Report at the 136th Supreme Convention, he asked, “What greater legacy can a council leave than to save the life of a child?”
The Knights of Columbus Supreme Council is pleased to announce that it has entered into preferred pricing agreements with three ultrasound vendors: Neurologica, Philips, and Esaote. Given our volume of donated machines (1000+ in the past ten years), we were able to leverage our buying power to lock in guaranteed pricing for three different machines from each vendor, including a three-year maintenance contract, training, and free onboard shipping. We recommend that you select one of these vendors when you are ready to donate money for an ultrasound machine.
When working with your local pregnancy center to obtain the guaranteed pricing, please use the contact information listed on the attached document. Either the listed contact person will work with you and the pregnancy center directly, or they may connect you and the pregnancy center with a local representative. Furthermore, you can arrange a demonstration with Neurologica and Philips, or arrange to visit a nearby center that has an Esaote machine.
We recommend that the pregnancy center buys the machine directly from the vendor and that it takes title to the machine.
We hope that these preferred pricing agreements help to streamline and enhance our crucial mission of saving lives. To view an interactive map of the difference we have made, and to see the video celebrating 1,000 ultrasound machines placed since 2009, please visit www.kofc.org/ultrasound.
