Giving to the School of Medicine


How You Can Make a Difference

Support from a variety of sources — including grants and gifts from individuals, corporations, and foundations — make the difference in allowing the School of Medicine to grow and expand its excellent programs in education, research and public service. The importance of the generous support of alumni and friends will continue to increase, providing many ways to impact the School of Medicine.

Today, philanthropic gifts are more important than ever. Support for students, teaching, capital projects and research activities benefit the School of Medicine’s mission of providing healthcare to medically underserved populations.

Undesignated gifts to the School of Medicine are used by the Dean and leadership to provide flexibility in supporting our important work of teaching the next generation of physicians and healthcare professionals.
