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 to scholarships or the program of your choice in honor of your class reunion.


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.


  • 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.
  • The Medical School awards more than $4 million in scholarships every year thanks to generous alumni contributions.
