Philanthropic Pathways at WMed

Support Our Philanthropic Pathways to Educational Innovation and Excellence

Thank you for your interest in supporting WMed’s philanthropic pathways to educational innovation and excellence.  We hope you are inspired to make a contribution of your time, talent, or treasure to support the mission of the medical school.

Financial contributions to The WMed Fund or The Dean’s Circle Leadership Giving Society support the philanthropic pathways to educational innovation and excellence. You may make an online donation to either giving program by clicking on the Support WMed button below.

  • Student Success
    Gifts toward student success are used to expand the educational opportunities of medical students and resident physicians and fund innovations in the medical school curriculum.
  • Access and Opportunity
    Gifts toward access and opportunity provide scholarship support to attract and retain WMed students. Scholarship support reduces student loan debt and helps to make a medical education more affordable for all students.
  • Diversity and Inclusion
    Gifts toward diversity and inclusion provide a stream of resources that allow WMed to expand diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives in medical education and increase scholarship support for students underrepresented in the field of medicine so we may contribute to a more diverse physician workforce.
  • Discovery
    Gifts toward the discovery pathway ensure that WMed may continue to provide support for medical students to conduct research projects and to provide opportunities for medical students and graduate medical students to participate in medical research under the guidance of WMed faculty.
  • Sustainability
    Donations for sustainability provide resources to ensure WMed can teach, perform medical research, and offer clinic services in safe, high quality, up-to-date facilities with the latest in technological equipment.
  • Legacy Impact
    When you include WMed in your estate plan, you create educational opportunities that last a lifetime. Some people choose to make gifts during their lifetime; others choose to provide for WMed through their estate plans. Planned gifts can take many forms and offer a variety of financial benefits to donors and their families while ensuring WMed achieves operational excellence and supports student success.
