Philanthropy at the University

Giving to the University

Make a Gift
Some things are best done through philanthropy
--in fact, sometimes philanthropy is the only way to reach a goal.

Most educational institutions like ours receive many types of funding—from federal grants to state dollars. All of them are important, but the financial heart of the university is philanthropy.

Philanthropy helps the university develop its distinctive strengths. It is the type of funding most closely aligned with our mission to explore, to build, to educate, to honor excellence, and to serve our community now and for years to come.

It’s also personal, aligned with your interests and wishes, and tailored to meet your financial guidelines. There are many ways to give and many levels of giving—from supporting the alumni fund and contributing to scholarships to creating an estate gift or establishing an endowment. We are here to help you explore options—and to make cherished hopes a reality.

It’s a win-win. In philanthropy, we work together. And together, we open the doors to the future of health care.
