Reunion Giving

Class of 1962 at 55th reunion

Your reunion is a time to reconnect with old friends and reminisce about your time in medical school. It’s also a time when many alumni reflect on the role the University of Minnesota Medical School has played in their professional and personal life.

Help us extend the University of Minnesota Medical School’s legacy to the next generation of students by making a special gift or pledge in honor of your class reunion.

WHAT COUNTS TOWARD YOUR CLASS GIFT?

All gifts to support the University of Minnesota Medical School or M Health Fairview made between January 1 and December 31 of your reunion year will count toward your class’ reunion gift total and be celebrated at your reunion.

This includes outright gifts made by credit card, check, IRA distributions, transfers of appreciated stocks, grants from donor advised funds, pledges for support over 1-5 years, all newly documented estate commitments, and any increases in previously documented estate gifts.

For milestone reunion groups from 2020 and 2021 still awaiting their in-person reunion events, all gifts made between January 1 of your original milestone year and October 31, 2022 will be celebrated as reunion gifts.

  • Scholarships for medical students are the most popular designation for gifts from Medical School alumni.
  • 89% of current U of M medical students depend on scholarships and loans.
