Giving to the School of Medicine


For almost 50 years we have fostered excellence, innovation and scholarship in education, research and patient care. It is a tall mission, but one made possible through the donations of many School of Medicine alumni, friends and partners.

Your generosity enables us to educate tomorrow’s medical professionals, conduct cutting-edge research and improve the health of our communities.

Make a difference through a gift to our remarkable School of Medicine. Many special giving opportunities are available, including:

The Alumni Mentoring Program

Connects alumni and friends with current medical students, while also providing funding for needed facility and program improvements. Each of these donors, who are recognized through a student office named in his or her honor, help the school improve its competitive edge in the medical education field, as well as guide the careers of future physicians.
Pledge Amount: $10,000.

Focus on Fifty

Designed for a donor who wishes to make a significant impact at the School of Medicine. A multi-year investment of $10,000 annually for five years will provide critical funding for key program needs. This commitment level includes room naming rights for highly visible locations at the School.
Pledge Amount: $50,000.
