Opportunities for Philanthropy

A gift to the College of Medicine allows you to bring change to the lives of many - not just to the faculty and students who will directly benefit from your gift. Donating to medicine is a way of giving that will generate innumerable positive outcomes for generations to come.

While you might not be able to wield a scalpel as skillfully as a surgeon or diagnose a disease as intuitively as an experienced clinician, you can contribute something meaningful to medicine by supporting the institutions in which those skills are taught and perfected. Every gift, no matter the amount, makes a difference. Learn how you can support the College of Medicine by exploring our major funding opportunities:
