Alumni Giving

Gifts from alumni propel important advancements in medical education, research, and clinical care. The philanthropy of our alumni is deeply appreciated by faculty, staff and students of the University of Minnesota Medical School.

Gifts are administered through the University of Minnesota Foundation (UMF). UMF is the official fundraising and gift-receiving organization for the University of Minnesota Medical School, and provides tax receipts for alumni gifts.

You can target your gift to support whatever program at the Medical School is most meaningful to you. Your gift is vital to our success!
